Winter garden has many amazing features, I live right by downtown winter garden where there are lots of restaurants and activities to do like farmers markets and weekly bands who perform. There are great places to hangout like bowling alleys, movie theaters and malls. Most of the people here are very nice!

Winter Garden is an area where you have everything so close by to enjoy. What I mean about that is there are many varieties of groceries stores, shopping areas, restaurants, and hang out spot with family and friends. Winter Garden is still having development process in the area I'm in. Winter Garden has different living places starting from apartments and townhomes all the way to big family homes. Access to education is not far and is very good. I love going to the movies and there are at least two options of having a movie theater nearby and the movie theaters have great hang out spots. Near the movie theater there's restaurants and places to grab a bite to eat or entertainment like performances and arcades. I wouldn't change anything about how the Winter Garden area is growing, iits doing s fine I love living over in this area.
It's gorgeous here! Everyone is so nice. Lots of diversity. Extremely family-friendly, however, the prices for a home are more the expensive side.
