Winter Park

A spacious and elegant community outside of downtown with large lakes and upscale shopping and dining.

Welcome to Winter Park

Winter Park, Florida, is a large Orlando suburb north of downtown. The community is full of pristine lakes, including Lake Virginia, Lake Baldwin, Lake Killarney, and Lake Maitland. The area is known for its beautiful outdoor spaces like lakefront parks and golf courses. Winter Park is also home to art museums and sculpture gardens. The community was established in the 1880s when it was founded as a resort community. The town quickly became a mecca for wealthy Northerners seeking an escape from the cold winter climate and unfavorable weather conditions.
Many historic buildings from this time still line the brick-paved streets, adding to the town’s unique charm. The resort vibe remains, and the town has transformed into a thriving city that continues to attract visitors and residents with its beautiful parks, cultural institutions, and vibrant downtown area.
