Overall I love living in Winter Springs, it’s far enough aware from the city, but retains a nice country side vibe. Long winding roads are great to drive on just to clear my mind, but during the day, traffic can still be a pain. That’s because there are a lot of places to go, whether your a foodie or enjoy tabling in retail therapy.

Throughout the year, the weather can vary from minute-to-minute. Many of my friends and family are familiar with the fact that it can rain like a hurricane one minute, sunshine and wisps of clouds the next. Winters can be cold in winter, but nothing like up north, some of the best areas to be during the winter.

Looking for a job? It won’t be impossible, from my time in the area, I’ve found that it helps to have a degree of sorts otherwise you’ll find yourself in retail or the food industry. Most of the jobs are highly professional and having a degree will help you with the competition.
