Although Leesburg is situated in the far western part of Lake
County, it is in many ways the center or hub of activity.
Perched atop Lake Wales Ridge, Leesburg attracts both the
traditional retiree and the urban refugee escaping the hectic
pace of the big city. The economy, once solely based upon
agriculture, has become more diverse, anchored by a
first-class airport, and industrial parks, as well as new
business incentive programs and fast track permitting to
encourage new business investment. The main shopping venue is
the Lake Square Mall, featuring 80 specialty stores and a
dozen movie theatres.
Leesburg's location, between two of Lake County's largest
bodies of water, Lake Griffin and Lake Harris, make it no
small wonder that boating and fishing are the two most popular
pastimes for Leesburg residents.
Newcomers are often delighted to find that Lake County's
largest city has a downtown area that is a treat to the eye
with its recently completed multi-million dollar streetscape
project. The picturesque downtown is lined with old historical
buildings, park benches, quaint little restaurants, gift
shops, antique stores and businesses to meet the needs of both
residents and visitors alike.
The City was named as a Florida Main
Street City in 1994 when the Downtown Business Association,
the City of Leesburg and the Chamber of Commerce formed the
Leesburg Partnership in a united effort to preserve the town's
heritage. The Leesburg Partnership has assisted in the City's
revitalization projects by hosting many public events and
festivals which include
Street Party, the Mardi Gras Ball, the Christmas Parade, the
Main Street Christmas Stoll, and the famous Leesburg
to name just a few.
This website also contains a powerful search feature that
provides direct access to the State of Florida Multiple
Listing System (MLS). This is the same database that Realtors
use to find property for their clients. We know how
frustrating it can be to call on an advertised property and
find that it has already been sold. Our listings are
automatically updated as soon as a new property comes on the
market and removed as soon as it expires or becomes pending.
