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.

I have lived in Winter Park my entire life. I have watched the city go under drastic improvements such as mostly construction for the past few years. Now that it is done, everything in beautiful!
Such a cute town, so much to do and see! Very clean environment and lots of litttle places to see. There tons of dive bars that are such a hit. Great school called Adventist, if you are looking into the medical field check this school out. Also great food everywhere! You will want to visit this place for sure.
