Winter Park Live and Up Close

(Published on - 8/5/2020 4:25:03 PM)

 City of Winter Park

Winter Park is considered to be the premier urban village in the state of Florida, and also happens to be one of the finest cities in the United States. It has a rich heritage, strong community, diverse economic base, and a high quality of life for residents and visitors. It is known for its elegant homes, bricked streets, and first-class shopping and dining. Winter Park is as beautiful as it is unique.

Known for:

Park Avenue is the epicenter of Winter Park. It is where you will find Winter Park’s shopping and dining. It is a cultural gem – boasts more than 140 boutiques, sidewalk cafes, and museums, all in the shadow of oak-canopied Central Park. In addition to the stylish shops, diverse dining choices, and many cultural offerings, you can plan a trip around special events that include seasonal art shows, concerts, exotic car shows, fashion events and holiday festivities.

Just a few blocks west is historic Hannibal Square, with more restaurants, shops, and galleries. There is a sense of history, and many of the original homes and bungalows still stand, built back when wealthy industrialists came in search of sunshine in the late 1800s. They left a legacy of arts and culture, like the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, now home to the most comprehensive collection of Tiffany glass.
