As the sprawling shadow of Orlando spreads over it, Clermont, just west of Orlando, is quickly losing its identity as a separate community. Still, Clermont is in pretty lake country, with open spaces that call for a special visit. Because it’s an old crossroads dating back to long before the turnpike or interstates were built, you’ll see vestiges of the old, pre-Disney Florida. Roadside stands sell oranges, grapefruit, goat milk fudge, and orange blossom honey. You’ll see motor courts that were forerunners of modern motels and cornball attractions that continue to rope in road-weary visitors. Although this day trip goes only as far as the Dade Battlefield south of Bushnell, the town itself has motels, a campground, and places to eat. Dade City was named for the major who, with 108 men, was ambushed north of here during the Seminole Wars. The community thrived in old Florida, but the interstates stole its thunder and downtown faded—only to be reborn as a chic center for antiques shops, boutiques, and trendy restaurants. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Orlando. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
