Snowy Places You Can Visit Near Clermont
Living in Clermont, Florida, you’re likely used to the perpetual summer we experience every year. Seasonal changes aren’t very common this far south and you’re definitely not going to see much snowfall (unless you live in Tallahassee). While we don’t get to enjoy the joys of having a winter wonderland right in our backyard during this time of the year, there are plenty events going on around town that will have you feeling like you’re in a magical snowfall (without the slipping, sliding, ice, and overbearing cold). Here are some events going on around Clermont that will help you ring in the holiday season in proper snowy fashion!
