Glide Adventure tours of Mount Dora includes both history and scenic views of this historic lakeside town in central Florida.
Your Glide Adventure tour begins at Mount Dora Boating Center and Marina at 148 Charles Ave Mount Dora , FL where you will receive hands on training to safely operate a Segway PT before heading out to waterfront Evans Park. There you try out some different terrains and speeds to get comfortable and accustomed to handling your Glide. We then regroup to check out the historic downtown district and stop at multiple points to hear interesting facts about the town and its residents. View beautiful and historic homes like the Donnelly house and glide through several of the town’s well known and historic neighborhoods. The tour will then turn back towards town via the Historic Lakeside Inn which was built in 1883 and is central Florida’s oldest continuously running hotel and overlooks beautiful Lake Dora.
From the hotel we will pass the marina and head over to Palm Island Park to weave intriguing nature paths and explore the raised boardwalk over the water’s edge. Watch for native birds and an alligator or two before heading to the famous Mount Dora lighthouse for a photo then travel back to the marina.
