Nearly four-thousand people call Weirsdale home, and it’s one of central Florida’s best kept secrets. The town is named for the expansive and striking Lake Weir. Along the shore, beautiful new homes sit side by side with well-kept handsome homes from decades past. The front yards are shaded by palm trees and massive oaks, their back yards give them a view of the clear blue waters of Lake Weir. The lake is ideal for zipping around on a jet ski, dropping a line to fish from a boat, or paddle boarding around the lake.
Despite the modern homes being constructed in Weirsdale, there are still links to the past. The fascinating Grand Oaks Carriage Museum is a window on what life was like before the automobile. Kentucky Bill’s Store of Many Items is located in a farmhouse style home from 1933, it sells much of the same merchandise as a general store of that era. As the future dawns on Weirsdale, it still holds on to its history. Two-story tin-roof homes built in the 1930’s and 1940’s still stand, and there are times when visiting Weirsdale is like stepping back into another age.
Weirsdale is within driving distance of several hiking trails including the Florida Greenway, making it ideal for outdoor enthusiast. There is also the Orange Blossom Opry, a large venue where you can hear country music most nights of the week.
