It’s easy to see how Lake County got its name. Many of its residential communities, downtown areas and parks are built around the freshwater lakes and rolling hills that characterize the county.
With a population of about 367,000, Lake County offers small-town charm with access to big-city amenities. It provides easy access to Central Florida interstates and highways, railways and international airports. Expansive recreational areas, including Lake Louisa State Park, and historic towns with vibrant shopping districts such as Mt. Dora contribute to the high quality of life there.
Tavares, a small municipality with its own seaplane base on Lake Dora, is the county seat.
Clermont, with a population of nearly 37,000, is the largest city and roughly 20 miles west of Orlando. Other popular cities and towns include: Leesburg, Eustis, Howey-in-the-Hills, Lady Lake and part of The Villages, a large retirement community.
Lake County is home to a wide range of industries including healthcare, manufacturing, and agriculture, and caters to businesses of any size, from mom-and-pop shops to multinational companies. There are 11 industrial and commercial parks in the county and ongoing economic development efforts underway to keep the momentum moving forward.
