Clermont is a residential town in the heart of Florida, close enough to the mega-attractions of the state, but just far enough away to escape the noise and tourist throngs. Orlando and the Orlando-Kissimmee metro area lie just 22 miles to the east of Clermont, and if you're taking a vacation here, chances are high that daily trips in that direction will play a role in your plans. After you have visited Disneyworld, Epcot Center, and the giant amusement and waterpark attractions of Orlando, be sure to spend some time exploring the restaurants and nightlife of Clermont. Clermont offers a glimpse into the quieter heart of old-world Florida with its rolling orange groves, artfully designed neighborhoods, charming shopping districts, spas, and golf courses, often overlooked by the stampede heading toward the parks.
Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Clermont:
-Take an off-road vehicle tour: Explore Florida's natural landscape on an ATV or dune buggy.
