Established in 1857, Leesburg is the oldest city in Lake County. Its origins lie in being an agricultural hub for citrus fruits and watermelon crops, but today, Leesburg is a lush, green community surrounded by beautiful lakes on both sides.
Leesburg is located near area attractions, shopping, hotels, restaurants, entertainment, golf and some of the country’s best fishing. It is also adjacent to The Villages, which is recognized as one of the largest and fastest growing master-planned retirement community in the world.
Year round events and festivals such as Black Heritage Festival, Mardi Gras, Leesburg Art Festival, Bikefest, 4th of July and Christmas activities attract thousands of visitors each year. There are also sporting events such as bass fishing and NCAA softball tournaments. The Leesburg Lightning, a team in the Florida Collegiate Summer League, plays baseball each summer at historic Pat Thomas Stadium.
Its simpler pace, nature-driven lifestyle, and convenient location are just a few of the reasons this “Lakefront City” is a great place to live and work in Lake County.
