Eustis still has a country charm with little traffic and a small downtown scene. I live in a suburb called Grand Island nearby and I enjoy going to festivals & events in the area. Mount Dora is about 20 minutes away and has lots of activities in restaurants. Most people work in Ocala, Orlando or Apopka since there is not a lot of big business. I would like to see the downtown developed more like Mount Dora but I know that will take time. I would change how strict they are on permits for things like fences and screened patios. Compared to nearby towns it takes twice as long and more expensive.

Eustis is a great small town in Florida! Most of the population is retired older folk who enjoy activities such as walking in the park by the lake or a senior outing at the local restaurants. The downtown is a quaint place with an older look because Eustis was founded in the late 1800’s. They have many activities from train rides to boat tours. Definitely a place to visit!
Eustis is an overall nice place to live. It has many lakes you can swim or boat in. Downtown Eustis is not that impressive. If you want a nice downtown, go to Mount Dora. Eustis High School is terrible. They are not very good at sports and the academics are not exceptional. The people are friendly and most are not creepy. I enjoy visiting my family in Eustis.
