Find out why life is better at the lake in Clermont

Even though this is a land-locked area, it certainly won't seem like it with all the water around you. Most Clermont vacation rentals will place you near or on 1 of its many lakes. They'll also put you smack dab in the center of Florida. It's about 20 miles from all those famous amusement parks, which means you can visit them easily and cruise back to Clermont for some delightful downtime. Unlike most of Florida, this area's full of rolling hills and paths with scenic views that attract elite athletes who want to train in the warm climate.

Things to do

The theme parks, lakes, and citrus groves are ap-peeling.

Clermont's home to 1 of Florida's first landmarks, the 1956 Citrus Tower, where you can admire the fruit groves that make Florida so ap-peeling. Set aside some time for the Lakebridge Winery and Vineyards, and go for a jog around the 10-mile Clay Loop. Recall that there are loads of lakes around Clermont vacation rentals, but it's worth mentioning that only some are swimmable. One of these is Lake Louisa, and you'll love its mangroves too. You're also about 25 miles from Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando, so your kids will love that.

Activities

Log off and start to explore Clermont's great outdoors

Clermont's legion of lakes and rolling hills, plus year-round warm temperatures make it a great place to log off, power down, and get outside for some exercise. Take a jaunt on the city's many pedestrian paths, most of which encircle the lakes. In the late summer and fall, the nearby Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is a months-long celebration of delectable cuisines and drinks. Clermont's own winery also has many events that include live music and tastings. Golf is par for the course around here too, so check out the many beautiful fairways.

Weather

All hail to the glorious Florida thunderstorm

There's lots of rain to go with your sunshine. Due to its humidity and closeness to large bodies of water, Florida gets more thunderstorms than any other state. One of this area's little pleasures is a summer storm that sweeps away the stifling mugginess. And watching a rumbling storm front approach can really get your juices flowing. If you're here for the heat, book Clermont vacation rentals for the summer or early fall. Winter time cools down a bit, with temps in the 50s and 60s. Spring is thoroughly pleasant too, with average temps in the 70s and 80s.

Natural features

Enjoy the hills and lakes in the not-so-flat part of Florida

Typically, Florida conjures up images of flat landscapes, so Clermont, with its lush hills, is a diamond in the rough. The Clermont Chain of Lakes is 3 bodies of water that are part of the Palatlakaha River watershed. The enormous Lake Apopka is about 3 miles away, and Floridians have made a huge effort to get its waters clean. The Oakland Nature Preserve on Lake Apopka's banks is home to wolves, snakes, turtles, and many birds. And oh yeah, this is gator country. They love freshwater, so swim in pairs and if you spy a gator, get away fast!
