If you’re looking for a place to enjoy the great outdoors but have culture galore on hand, then Winter Park is just right for you. It’s also close to your Orlando vacation villa too.
1. Tie the knot at a premier wedding destination!
Winter Park knows a thing or two about hosting weddings! There are several venues to choose from too: Central Park Rose Garden, a calm and beautiful green space; The Winter Garden Country Club for a more traditional venue with wood floors and real fireplaces; The Mead Garden Amphitheater will take care of the largest parties – it will seat 300; for something altogether more intimate, Kraft Azalea has a secret shaded garden with views of the lake.
Why not book one of our ultra luxury Florida villas for the wedding party?
2. On your bike
Winter Park is brimming to overflowing with bike and walking trails to keep you active and enjoying the scenery.
Try the Ward Park Mead Garden trail for a taste of the exotic – native birds and plants from around the world inhabit this sub-tropical forest trail. The Downtown Cardio trail – choose from a 0.5, 1, 1.5 or 3 mile walk or jog – will really get you going. Or try the other options: the East West Bike route, Cady Way trail, Lake Baldwin trail; Golfside walk and Pennsylvania walk; one thing’s for sure you won’t get bored.
3. A slice of culture
Visit one or more of Winter Park’s museums, galleries, festivals or events throughout the year.
Don’t miss the Louis Comfort Tiffany collection at the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art to see every medium he used in his art work from jewels, glass, mosaics and marble.
Look out for The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival next year too.
4. All aboard…
Take one of the hourly 12 mile Scenic Boat Tours through Winter Park’s chain of lakes and soak up the sun!
5. When in Florida…play golf!
The Winter Park Country Club’s golf course, is the second oldest 9-hole walking course in Central Florida which has seen a number of famous players take a turn. The course is challenging with its narrow tree-lined fairways and small bunkers.
Exhausted, chill out back at your Orlando vacation rental, take a swim if you’ve still got the energy and make plans for another day at Winter Park.
