Shop, Dine & Enjoy Live Entertainment!
The City of Eustis introduces the new Downtown Waterfront Entertainment District, approved September 5, 2013 by Ordinance #13-11, which brings together businesses for mutual promotion and activities as well as family and friends to enjoy our unique shopping experience, fine dining, and live entertainment.
