What we See
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 head over to the Port of Mount Dora to stop for a photo op in front of the iconic Mount Dora lighthouse and then enter to explore one of Mount Dora’s hidden gems, Palm Island Park to weave through intriguing nature paths and explore the raised boardwalk over the water’s edge. Watch for native birds and an alligator or two! Next we literally “Climb Mount Dora” and then descend into the heart of the historic downtown business district. We’ll pass the Historic Lakeside Inn which was built in 1883, is central Florida’s oldest continuously running hotel and overlooks beautiful Lake Dora. Learn the history of Mount Dora and see historic homes like the Donnelly house and quaint neighborhoods like boat house row if there is time. The tour will then turn around to glide back to end at the marina. Our Sunset tour goes back to Evans Park where you get more free time to glide around and watch the sun set over Lake Dora.
