Winter Park is located along I-4, between Orlando and Maitland and is a very popular area with full time residents, families and tourists. Boasting, easy access to employment centers, theme parks and some great schools, Winter Park is well worth taking a look at if you are planning to buy a new home in the Orlando area.
Winter Park was founded as a resort destination by wealthy New England Industrialists over a hundred years ago and it is recognized as the first centrally planned community in Florida. The main street includes not only public civic buildings and retail, but also art galleries, a private liberal arts college, museums, a park, a train station, a golf course country club, a historic cemetery, and a beach and boat launch. Winter Park is celebrated for a sense of place and history, uncommon to many parts of Central Florida. Many structures are more than 100 years old.
The scenic “Olde Winter Park” area is punctuated by small, winding brick streets, and a canopy of old Southern Live Oak and Camphor trees, draped with Spanish Moss. The city draws thousands of visitors to annual festivals including the Bach Festival, the nationally ranked Sidewalk Art Festival, and the Winter Park Concours d’Elegance.
