When I think of Winter Springs, I think of safety, affordability, and ease of access. The local police department makes constant patrols ensuring the safety of its citizens. Affordability, the market of housing or apartment living is reasonable. Its cheaper to live here than to get a place in Orlando and worry about a high crime rate. Ease of access, there is plenty of Publix's, gas stations and other amenities without having to drive more than 2-5 minutes away!

Another positive thing I can say is commuting is a breeze, now excluding holiday traffic is usually light and not an issue when coming home from school or work.
I precept for school out of Winter Springs, FL. I love this and the surrounding communities! Commute is easy with easy access to favorites like Starbucks and Chikfila.
