It is a senior mecca. It isn't close to anything. The town is run-down and they don't seem to be interesting in changing in. A lot of senior housing. To me it caters to the shuffle-board type.

And while Mt. Dora is quaint and a pretty downtown I wouldn't chose to live there either. And hey while I'm at it I don't care for Tavares either. Mt. Dora and Tavares are not very diverse if you get my drift. And while I am sure there are loads of wonderful people living in these cities some seem quite close minded.

If you have to live close to Leesburg for work reasons I too would chose Clermont/Minneola area. Much more geared you younger families, more activities and closer to Orlando.
What I know and see of Leesburg is that it's predominately seniors. I think you can check the median age on line.

Eustis is similar to Leesburg ie, not good, but without the cute downtown shops. I wouldn't want to live there.

You might be better off telling us which development houses are in you're thinking of renting as there is quite a range of neighborhoods in the greater area. Not sure how much places in this development rent for but this is a really nice community with some mid range houses just to the north of Leesburg in Lady Lake which would have good schools- Harbor Hills Bella Vista Neighborhood now under construction | Harbor Hills. Leesburg itself runs for several miles in a couple of directions as it goes around a large lake. Any of the family communities near The Springs Development in the country along the southern shore of the lake are nice. Just behind Lake Square Mall near the college is another nice area. I don't know which schools the later two are assigned to though there is a Montessori school in Leesburg.
