Once considered a winter retreat, Winter Park today is a popular city center. Established in 1887, and situated just north of Orlando, Winter Park in the beginning was a winter resort for vacationing northers seeking to escape the harsh winters. With the Winter Park Chain-of-Lakes and so much natural beauty, the small town provided a tranquil retreat. It then grew to be a community sought after not by just northerners, but also by Florida residents and now the attention of those abroad. This small city, with small town charm has a very apparent personality its’ own.
The beauty and character of this historic town is unmatched in Central Florida. A city center of more than 28,000 residents, Winter Park boasts a thriving cultural community with museums, more than 70 parks, and many annual festivals. The feel of the town is very vibrant and reminiscent of a southern town with a very cultured scene. From the high-end shops and restaurants on Park Avenue, to one of Central Florida’s oldest golf courses, museums, festivals and so much more. It’s a truly unique lifestyle that takes you a step back in time when strolling through the brick streets of Winter Park.
If what you seek is an old world, luxury community containing country clubs, parks, boutiques, universities and rich with culture and still only minutes to urban city centers, you have found a place to call home.
