Clermont is located 25 miles west of Orlando and known as the “Gem of the Hills.” Like most other cities in the county, Clermont is marked by rolling hills that were once covered with citrus groves. Many of these groves are now residential communities. The city lies along the shores of an 11-lake chain, with the lakes ranging in size from 20 acres to 3,634 acres. Not surprisingly, fishing for bass, bluegill, shell-cracker, perch and channel catfish is a favorite pastime. People also visit attractions such as the Citrus Tower Centre; President’s Hall of Fame; Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards; and the Palisades Golf Course, where holes hug the shores of Spring Lake then climb 80-plus feet from the tee to green, providing panoramic views from one of the highest points overlooking Lake Minneola.
