Leesburg vacation rentals

Even the Sunshine State's got its trade secrets

The people of Leesburg know something most other folks don't. Year-round warmth, a laid-back, lakeside vibe, and all the amenities of the city make for blissfully easy living, and with a Leesburg vacation rental you can sample a bit of it for yourself. It's the sort of place that always seems to have the best of both worlds. Close enough to the attractions of Orlando, but far enough away not to get swept up in its hectic pace, Leesburg is set on the banks of Lake Harris, and is surrounded by state parks and wildlife.

Living the lake life in lovely Leesburg

Lake life is likely to be a big draw if you're considering a Leesburg vacation rental. Travelers come from far and wide to swim, fish, and boat out on Lake Harris. If 2 wheels and an open road are more your style, the area's particularly popular for motorcycle tours. In spring time, listen out for the roar of engines, as thousands upon thousands of motorcycles pour into town for the annual Leesburg Bikefest. Night owls will find the city's got a decent after-dark life, while there are plenty of options for retail therapy, too.

So close, yet just far enough away

Looking for the beating heart of Leesburg? The 64-acre Venetian Gardens park is almost certainly it. Sitting down by the edge of lake Harris, it's got its own marina, along with canals, bridges, gardens, pavilions, and landscaped islands, all stitched together by miles of walking and running trails. You can even go fishing there. Wildlife lovers will find plenty of state parks and reserves in the vicinity of the city, and for those looking to go big in a different sort of park, Walt Disney World attractions in Orlando are only an hour's drive away.

Thunder in paradise with a Leesburg vacation rental

You know they call it the sunshine state, right? There are 2 basic seasons round here. The winter (if you can call it that), is warm and dry. It almost never freezes, even in the middle of the coldest January nights, and snow is a mythical substance that no one's ever seen. Summer, on the other hand, can get searingly hot and humid. It runs from May to October, and during high summer, the afternoon thunderstorms roll through on such a regular basis that they're just a part of everyday life. Pack a raincoat for your Leesburg vacation rental.

It's better down where it's wetter, take it from me

Leesburg is set on the shores of Lake Harris, towards the west of Lake County. Beginning to see a theme developing here? The life aquatic is big in this part of Florida. Aside from its lakes, the area is characterized by wetlands and marshes, all of which are a haven for all kinds of wildlife. The range of resident and migratory birds is incredible, with plenty of mammals too. But be honest, what you really want to know about are the gators. Well, good news is there are loads of them about - try Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area for starters.
