The Palm Beach of Central Florida, Lake Virginia is almost completely surrounded by multi-million dollars homes. The Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour is the best way for a visitor to experience this beautiful setting. You can also rent standup paddleboards at Dinky Dock.

The lake tour is such a fun day activity. It takes you through the lakes into Lake Virginia. Highly recommend it.

We used to live on Lake Virginia and miss is terribly. The Winter Park Boat cruise swings by this lake along with several others. You need to walk around Rollins College campus and enjoy the paved walkway along the lake. Truly beautiful.

Probably the best tasting of the Winter Park chain of lakes....crisp and clean. I also recommend this body for bathing, as it is the most refreshing and enlivening aquatic environment.

This is a large lake surrounded by mostly mansions and Rollins College. It has one small public boat launch, so you can bring your boat or rent a kayak. A guided lake and canal tour is available nearby, and worth doing. Just biking around this...More

My husband and son live on this lake! They fish here all the time, but I am not allowed to reveal their secret spot for bass. Go tubing or skiing and when you have visitors in town, take them for a cruise through the canals!

We took the "Scenic Boat Tour" around the lakes and through the canals. Worth every penny! A great time and saw beautiful homes. Our skipper, Albert, was very knowledgeable and great fun to talk to!
