Romantic Things to do in Mount Dora at Night

Historic Downtown Mount Dora screams romance, whether you walk the streets and alleyways, or stroll along Lake Dora for sunset.  A couple of our favorite sunset spots are Lakeside Inn, the oldest continuously operated hotel in Florida, and Port of Mount Dora, where you can find one of the few inland lake lighthouses in the United States. In addition, there are multiple options for sunset cruise on Lake Dora, such as Rusty Anchor and CatBoat Adventure.  

The city of Mount Dora has an entertainment district ordinance that allows you to carry alcoholic beverages from participating downtown locations which means you can purchase a drink to go. Therefore, consider having a romantic dinner somewhere like Pisces Rising, 1921, or Goblin Market. After, take a walk, then stop at Wolf Branch Brewing or Maggie’s Attic for a drink, or enjoy some live music at HandleBar. Many restaurants and bars offer live music all throughout the week, therefore, be sure to check their social pages. 

If you prefer to relax and talk as you sip on some coffee or tea, pop into One Flight Up or Village Coffee Pot. Local pro tip, if you’d like a quiet spot, make sure there’s not live music or trivia at One Flight Up. 

How about a romantic dinner and live show? Mount Dora Community Building Theater and Icehouse Players host a variety of entertainment such as shows, concerts, plays, and musicals. We’ve been to plenty of plays and musicals over the years at Icehouse Players because all three of our girls have taken part of shows there. The talent has never disappointed.
