Originally founded in 1884 and later incorporated in 1916, Clermont is often called the 'Gem of the Hills' due to its rolling hills and scenic landscape. The eye-catching city offers outdoor fun for all visitors, particularly families. Most famous for its lakes like Lake Sunnyside, there are plenty of areas for camping, fishing, hunting, horseback riding — and para-gliding and hang-gliding are favorite activities in Clermont too. Visit the unique Florida Citrus Tower, one of the state’s first landmarks, and enjoy panoramic views. Explore the cute on-site gift shop to pick up a memento of your visit.
In the area, there are more than 15 area golf courses, or if you are feeling adventurous, take a farm tour, boat charter or even an airplane to view Clermont from different perspectives.
