Winter Park, Florida is a wonderful place to either visit or live. I have resided here for two years and this town is rich in history and character. The weather is beautiful year round and to boost the vast museums and botanical gardens are a great comfort to those that possess either an intellectual or naturalistic appreciation of the world. The Winter Park Boat Tour and the gorgeous blossoms at Leu Botanical Gardens are a must! A true treasure, the people here are kind, friendly and welcoming. Winter Park, Florida is a mesmerizing place to be.

Winter Park is a vibrant place, with many experiences and opportunities to live it up. This city is host to many delicious restaurants, with a vast selection of cuisines to accommodate any taste pallet. If you're in a shopping mood, you're in luck! Winter Park has a plethora of dedicated shops for any interest, ranging from local stores to major chain retailers. The city has an electrifying nightlife with many clubs and bars, including many places to watch live local music.
I loved growing up in Winter Park. It's where I was born and raised, and I met the most incredible people there. The city is laid out perfectly for getting around, and I never thought the traffic was really that bad (except for Fairbanks and occasionally I-4). We are also only about an hour drive from New Smyrna Beach (huge weekend hotspot) and 90 minutes from Tampa Bay (lots of Bucs fans here). With Park Ave, Fid's Pub, The Porch, the newly renovated public 9-hole golf course (known by locals as "The Old Man's Course") and the gorgeous lakeside Rollins College, it has so much to offer. It's politically diverse, generally considered pretty wealthy and a bit posh (though definitely not everyone is wealthy), a pretty good public school system (and very good private schools but they are a bit pricey), and it has the most unique, incredible culture that is almost impossible to compare to anywhere else I have been.
