TAVARES — Natural beauty is one of the biggest draws to Lake County.
The blueways trail community development project of the Department of Environmental Services promotes the abundance of natural resources available to citizens and tourists.
The Blueways project is a series of recreational waterway trails scenically located along the lakes, rivers and canals of Lake County for canoeists and kayakers. Maps and trail markers are provided to help paddlers and boaters guide their way through the water trails. The maps include launch areas, waterside restaurants, shops, camps and available hotels for travelers. The program enhances recreational and educational opportunities for both local residents and visitors, and it promotes economic development.
The Lake County Department of Economic Development and Tourism is hoping to expand on the blueways project by asking local residents where their favorite canoeing locations are in Lake County. If anyone has any information they can provide on the subject such as favorite blueway paths or great places to canoe and kayak, call Debi Dyer at (352) 429-3673 or e-mail email@example.com.
The Department will be using the information supplied by Lake County citizens on a brochure with a detailed map for visitors and residents alike.
