"RALLYE de MONTAGNE": Saturday after the Car Show
OR Depart when you want.
The challenging “Rallye de Montagne” is a soaring climb to the top of the highest mountain on the Florida peninsula and the most prominent spot in the entire state.
A great drive for the quick-handling MG. Due to the amazingly high popularity of the Rallye de Montagne, three routes have been developed to reduce the number of cars on the roads at one time. All three lead to the mountain top.

Lake County is home to many blueberry farms, five of which are a close drive from the Mission Inn. Fresh-picked blueberries are a treat that is available for only a few weeks. Fortunately, this occurs during the time that GOF South is visiting Lake County.
A visit to one of these farms on your way home on Sunday will add adventure and some delicious goodies to your GOF experience.
