Living in Winter Park is a relaxing and fun experience. The brick streets are lined with shade trees and many travel via bicycle, especially on Sundays. Pedestrian traffic is heavy on sunny days and people are friendly. You cannot help but be aware that it is a town of long standing and a slightly higher standard of living than most.
Unique shops line the main street with specialty eateries spaced conveniently between. Ladies gather for shopping and men often frequent main street looking for that special gift for that special lady. A pleasant place to shop, or just browse the street invites participation in either ritual. Or, if you prefer, you may enjoy yourself in the shady park people watching.

Lakes dot the area and living in Winter Park on one of these is the ultimate in Florida living. The best areas in Winter Park have long time residents and you could consider yourself lucky to obtain one of the homes there.
