Winter Park is a very Beautiful City! There is a ton of things to do for the family. Great restaurants, beautiful Chain of Lakes, amazing Country Clubs. Overall it feels safe but there is definitely crime all over Orlando. It is centrally located. Park Avenue has great shopping and wonderful restaurants and bars. The Sunrail and the Amtrak run through the heart of Winter Park. The historical homes are beautiful. There are beautiful gardens including Leu Gardens and Mead Gardens. You can take a tour of the Winter Park chain of lakes for $12. It is really need to navigate through the canals and see the beautiful homes on these lakes. Feels like a step back in time looking at old Florida. There are great art museums. There are also plenty of gyms and parks for exercising. There is plenty of grocery stores. The people are friendly but the whole vibe of the town is definitely high end. It is very hard to find a nice house for a decent price. I would like to see more affordable housing.

Winter Park oozes a strong sense of community! Centered mainly around Winter Park High school much of the town consists of attendees or alumni constantly reuniting and reminiscing on the high school days. The school provides a focus point for community activities such as games, performances, fund raisers and more. Everybody knows everybody and the connections are endless. Though it is composed mainly of homes Winter Park offers many options for leisure activities as it is home to an abundance of restaurants and even a bowling alley. Park Avenue is a street with many shops and restaurants while also being a park and place of community gathering.
I moved to Winter Park a little over a year ago after living in Dr. Phillips (another suburb of Orlando) most of my life. I love it, it has a rich history and if you live in "downtown" Winter Park everything is very walkable and there are bus stations all over and a train station right in the middle of the most popular area. There's also a quite a few beautiful parks and walking trails in and around the area. The local restaurants are amazing. It's more expensive to live here, but the quality of life has honestly been better!
