The city of Winter Park is one of the finest suburbs of Orlando. There are a multitude of activities to do here such as experiencing The Baldwin Dog park, which sits right on a lake, might I add; or creating your own pottery in one of our shops, downtown called "All Fired Up!". Winter Park itself is a nice area. There is not much crime, it is nice and clean, and almost everyone you meet is kind and courteous. With over 100 restaurants to choose from, your pallet will never be tired of trying new foods here. Additionally, the schools and their staff care about the students and their education. Overall, Winter Park is truly a wonderful place to live. I recommend living in Winter Park!

Winter Park is a fantastic place to live no matter who you are! It has a wonderful family oriented vibe with with a lot of diversity. The neighborhoods are beautiful, clean, and safe. Nightlife here is always fun; there are many restaurants and bars to visit and see great live music. Baldwin Park is one of my favorite spots to go for a run or just a casual walk to get away and clear my head. I live here while attending the University of Central Florida and plan on living here for many more years.

Winter Park, Florida is a beautiful, friendly town. Downtown Winter Park is a very diverse area. Beautiful boast rides past Rollins College and beautiful scenic views of homes on the lakes. Many eateries along Park Avenue, the train stops right here in downtown Winter Park. Leisurely stroll down the avenue to sight see and window shop, both day and night. Wine tastings, downtown area events at the park and the beautiful Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of Art with the Tiffany displays, especially at Christmas time. What a beautiful place to live:)
