Winter Garden is a fun and safe area. Downtown Winter Garden has a lot of restaurants, shops, water features, etc. It is very family friendly. Houses are constantly being built and selling quickly. Every Saturday they have the farmer's market which is a big hit! Winter Garden also has a trail that runs through town. There are a lot of cyclists and runners. Golf carts are super popular and much more efficient. One thing I would like to see is more groups put together for health and wellness.

Winter Garden is hands down one of the cutest and friendliest growing town. Downtown WG has amazing food options from Winter Garden Pizza Company to Thai Blossom. Not only is the food great, but the shops and boutiques are unique to their own. Every Saturday there's a gigantic local farmers market downtown that has a large variety of options for food, clothing, pet goods, and home goods. Winter Garden continues to grow and is becoming more popular everyday!
I love downtown Winter Garden's mix of old and new streets and buildings, fun shopping, and restaurants! There are two brand new hospitals. Easy access to downtown Orlando and Disney world. New Elementary and Middle schools. Lovely YMCA. All it needs is a Trader Joe's!
