Community Profile

While Lake County is home to a myriad of local recreational and entertainment opportunities, residents also enjoy the County’s close proximity to the many regional recreational and entertainment destinations found in surrounding counties. The Orlando-area attractions and the beaches on both the east and west coasts are within an hour’s drive of Lake County.

Nature lovers will find an abundance of options – like hiking though endless acres of preserves, viewing rare birds or paddling pristine Blueways, and anglers will be lured by the prospect of catching trophy bass on one of over 1,000 freshwater lakes.

Treasure hunters will enjoy finding that rare antique at the area’s many unique downtown districts, which combine small town charm and arts with culture sophistication. Lake County offers four distinct community theaters and its own not-for-profit orchestra featuring 60 professional musicians, in addition to a wealth of historical museums, colorful art centers and an extensive public library system.

So come play, stay, dine, explore Lake County and experience "Real Florida. Real Close". For more information regarding recreation, arts and culture in Lake County, visit
