Why Winter Park? Because it reminds me of a little city in Europe and there’s enough to do for young and the old, plenty of shops and restaurants. I remember having a picnic in the park with my son and friends. The Orange County city of Winter Park is situated north of Orlando and was once considered a winter resort. Today, the arts- and culture-filled city includes Rollins College and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of Natural Art with the Tiffany art glass collection. The Winter Park area is also a nature lover’s destination. You will find more than 70 parks, all home to various events, festivals and celebrations throughout the year and available to anyone looking for a place to sit in the shade and enjoy a beautiful Central Florida afternoon. Not only are there enough activities to keep you and your family content within the Winter Park city limits, but all the Orlando attractions are just minutes away.
