Get away to peaceful Leesburg in Lake County. This classic town in central Florida lies between Lake Harris and Lake Griffin, and gives you a calmer way to enjoy the warm Floridian weather. Leesburg is close enough to the famous theme park craziness to give you a vacation without the hassle. Leesburg is both convenient, and distant from the top tourist destinations in Florida.
Things To Do In Leesburg
Leesburg has a ton of outdoor activities that your whole family will enjoy. See the luxurious Venetian Gardens Park on the edge of Lake Harris. At this park you can find birds, paths and maybe even spot an alligator or two! The park is a free activity, and bringing a camera helps to make the trip even more memorable. Historic Downtown Leesburg is the place for shopping and restaurants, and is perfect for a warm evening. On Saturday mornings, the ‘Towne Square’ downtown transforms into a farmers market. From 8am until 1pm the farmers market entertains you with music, food, and a truckload of local charm. Get a good look at Central Florida up close with Kayaking Florida Waters, who give (rare and unique) guided kayak tours. This special experience is like no other. The Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve is another nature spot you have to hit in Leesburg. The hiking and biking trails are lined with flowers, birds, and butterflies — giving you both a relaxing and energizing environment.
