Tavares is located in beautiful Lake County, home to more than 1,000 lakes and rivers. It is known as America’s Seaplane City since seaplanes can be spotted flying over the water every day. The unique terrain is made up of rolling green hills and incredible views across the water, with preserves, state parks, wildlife and national forests nearly everywhere you turn. Downtown visitors will find an entertainment district that has an international assortment of restaurants, art galleries, shops, and music venues. There’s always something fun to do in Lake County, from festivals to roadside farm stands, but if you’re looking for something more, Orlando is just a short drive away.
