Winter Park Reviews

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.
Review Winter Park
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.
We have been homeowners in Winter Park for a few years now and love it. The schools are highly rated, the neighborhoods feel safe, and the neighbors are friendly in every neighborhood we've ever visited. It is close to downtown Orlando but still takes about 15 minutes, more if traffic is heavy. Park Ave is an excellent place for really great wining and dining, though not a lot of "night life" in Winter Park.
Overall, great place to live!
