Get in and away from Orlando and Disney World at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida
I don’t know about you, but whenever I’m in Orlando, I try to get out of Orlando. All those tourists whizzing down I-4 and International Drive make me nervous. A good place to stay, and still play the area’s golf courses, with maybe a side trip to Disney World, is the Mission Inn Resort & Club. It’s only about 35 minutes northwest of Orlando, but a world away in effect.
It’s in Howey-in-the-Hills, a place as funky as its name, with rolling land and orange groves and a small-town friendliness.
Mission Inn is a family-owned, family-run resort with un-traditional resort activities. They have skeet shooting for example. But, the thing I like best about it is the boats for rent: they have everything from small bass boats to pontoon boats to 26-foot cabin cruisers. You can put in here and get to the Atlantic Ocean, though I doubt you could afford the rent on a boat for that long.
