The prime Orlando location occupied by Winter Park, FL puts houses for sale there within easy reach of some of the most popular points of interest in Central Florida.
Such as Downtown Orlando, the Orlando International Airport, the Orange County Convention Center, Disney World, and more!
But Winter Park isn't just a great city by association.
It's a world-class destination all its own!
People have been flocking to Winter Park for more than a hundred years to enjoy its natural beauty and great weather.
But in that time, the city has also added many new and exciting ways to do it.
As well as some attractions that have nothing to do with the great outdoors.
Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Winter Park, FL:
Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour
The Winter Park Chain of Lakes is without a doubt one of the city's best features.
And without a doubt, one of the best ways to enjoy it is on the Scenic Boat Tour.
For just 14 bucks a pop ($7 for kids 11 and under) the Scenic Boat Tour pontoon takes you on an hour-long tour of 3 of the six lakes in the Winter Park Chain.
Riders can expect to see a variety of flora, from subtropical palms, to stately cypress and oak trees, to brilliant wildflowers.
Plus a parade of extravagant mansions overlooking the lake.
And if you're lucky, you might even spot some of the locals.
Like a gator lounging on the sunny banks, or an osprey swooping down for a limnological sourced afternoon snack.
The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art
Live alligators a bit too wild for your taste?
For a tamer time, try the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art.
Located off Winter Park's famous Park Ave, the Morse Museum boasts the world's largest collection of pieces by Louis Comfort Tiffany, renowned glass and jewelry maker, and one of the most well-known artists of the 19th and 20th centuries.
You'll see his breathtaking chapel interior, painstakingly transplanted from the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 to modern day Winter Park.
As well as many paintings, works of pottery, and pieces of jewelry.
And, of course, what Louis Comfort Tiffany collection would be complete without a few of his famous lamps?
They're here too!
Admission is just 6 dollars for adults, 5 dollars for seniors, 1 dollar for students, and free for kids under 12!
Get Your Jazz On at the Alfond Inn
Central Florida is full of cozy, dimly lit jazz clubs.
But if you want the ultimate jazz experience in Central Florida, you have to go outside.
And you have to go to Winter Park!
On select fall nights, Winter Park's famous Alfond Inn hosts the Get Your Jazz On outdoor concert series.
Featuring live jazz by the area's top musicians.
As well as all-you-can-eat barbeque and an open bar.
The Alfond Inn's grassy courtyard makes the perfect place to spread out a blanket, or plant a lawn chair, while you enjoy the performance and the cool night air.
While roaring fire pits on the patio make the perfect place to warm back up!
Shopping on Park Ave
Just 2 blocks from the Alfond Inn lies Winter Park's world-famous Park Ave.
Central Florida's ultimate upscale shopping destination.
Think of Park Ave as the Orlando area's very own Rodeo Drive.
Where you'll find chic womenswear at top boutiques like Charyli and Arabella.
One-of-a-kind trinkets, ornaments, and other gifts at the Partridge Tree.
Fresh flowers at shops like Bliss on Park Avenue and the Flower Market.
And intoxicating bottled scents at Caswell-Massey, "America's original perfumers."
Though Park Ave's haughty air might tempt you to dress the part, you'll be doing a lot of walking - so bring comfy shoes!
And for the smorgasbord of fine restaurants interspersed with the shops, bring an appetite!
Touches of Stardom
If Park Ave is Winter Park's version of Rodeo Drive, then Touches of Stardom is its version of LA's Starline Tours.
This guided walking tour takes you to the homes and haunts of some of Winter Park's most famous natives and residents.
Like Paul McCartney, Will Ferrell, Anthony Hopkins, and Cuba Gooding Jr.
Not to mention Winter Park's most beloved expat, the late Mr. Rogers.
The tour takes about 90 minutes, and prices start at just 42 dollars!
Mead Botanical Garden
While it's fun to hobnob with the rich and famous of Park Ave and Touches of Stardom, Mead Gardens offers a more down-to-earth experience.
This 47-acre botanical garden features miles of walking trails and wooden boardwalks.
Taking you through an astounding array of Florida ecosystems.
From riparian forest, to spring-fed streams, wetlands, ponds and lakes, and longleaf pine sandhills.
You'll encounter a living rainbow of flowers.
Many of which - along with various of Mead's tree species - are labeled with placards.
Mead Botanical Garden makes the perfect place for a wedding, family reunion, or simply an afternoon stroll.
And the best part - it's free!
