There are a lot of great local options for a taste of “Real Florida.” Many local restaurants offer delivery and take-out service as well. The city of Tavares offers a variety of waterfront restaurants to grab a bite to eat and watch the seaplanes take off, including Puddle Jumpers (which is seaplane themed!). Don’t forget to stop Tavares Ice Cream and get a scoop (or two) of one of their 30+ flavors!
