Wrought iron balconies
Favorite thing: These wrought iron balconies are another "southern" feature. I've seen this sort of thing not only in Tampa and Key West, but also in New Orleans and parts of Alabama. The covered arcade on the second floor kept the upstairs interior rooms somewhat cooler, an important fact in the days before A/C.
Favorite thing: Again, the lights at Donnelly Park during the holidays. Photo looks better enlarged.

Mt. Dora City Hall
Favorite thing: This _is a Southern town. You can tell be the columns. That Greek Revival style never went out of fashion here.
Favorite thing: View wildlife from the boardwalk/nature trail. There are alligators here also with many signs warning not to feed them.
Palm Island Park
Favorite thing: Visit Palm Island Park - Has the longest boardwalk on a lake in Florida. Good for viewing wildlife and fishing.
Fondest memory: The holiday lights at Donnelly Park....a fabulous display, although you can't tell by the photo.
