Winter Park Florida
The Orange County city of Winter Park, situated north of Orlando, was once considered a winter resort. Today, the arts- and culture-filled city of Winter Park includes Rollins College and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of Natural Art. Winter Park also is a nature lover’s destination. In Winter Park 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.
Winter Park was incorporated as a city in 1885. It quickly became a popular vacation destination for wealthy northerners to escape the frigid winters, hence the name Winter Park. Founded as a luxury getaway, Winter Park continued to maintain its high-end reputation ever since. Now Winter Park is one of Central Florida’s most expensive neighborhoods, with continual redevelopment and reinvestment.
The most desirable neighborhoods in Winter Park surround the chain of lakes.
