    Any ideas for a day out from Disney? Would be happy to drive a couple of hours, was thinking of a nice town, maybe with a couple of smaller attractions like boat trips etc. We don't do beaches to sit on but like coastal/lake/riverside places.
    I have looked at St Augustine and Mt Dora which are both contenders but just wondered if I am missing somewhere good?

    Thank you

    Mount Dora was one of the towns that we used to visit whenever we went to Orlando and we really enjoyed having dinner at a lakeside restaurant called "Pisces Rising" and a stroll around the various quaint shops nearby.
    Sadly, the last time we were there [around 3 years ago], many of the shops had [or were to] close and the place somehow didn`t feel the same as it used to be.
    As I say, this was a while back so things may have changed by now.

    How about a trip to KSC if you are into that sort of thing?

    Can highly recommend St. Augustine - a great day out, but actually really needs a few more to fit everything in. Take the trolley tour, buy tickets online to save money and they are valid for a full 3 days. It will take you round to all kinds of historical places, along with the St. Sebastian Winery and Whetstone Chocolate factory. You can take a free wine tasting tour at the Winery, a chocolate tour is around $8, cheaper if you buy at the trolley headquarters. It will also take you to the beach, but you have to change trolleys at a specific stop. Lots of little quirky shops, lots to see and do.
