Winter Park features open park space, residential neighborhoods, golf courses, and a street-side shopping district along Park Avenue. Wealthy businessmen established the city as a resort community in the late nineteenth century. The community developed slowly, but progressively became a popular destination with the addition of the railroad, connecting the city with surrounding cities. Eventually the town became a beautiful winter resort for northern visitors.
Winter Park is never lacking in fun activities and historic scenery, many of the town’s old buildings still remain and brick paved streets still in tact. Visitors and locals enjoy walking the old brick paved streets and gazing upon the carefully constructed architectural buildings of the past. The Hannibal Square is also an interesting place to tour; the square was once home to African Americans who worked the groves. Memoirs from the past can also be viewed at local museums; the most popular are the Enzian Theatre and the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens. Take a walk down the Cady Way Trail, distancing a total of six and a half miles long; the trail features the most beautiful homes of Winter Park.
Walking through the city, one can appreciate the ideas of great minds that became realities with the purchase of the small town. Once a developing resort community now exists as a suburb just minutes from Orlando, Kissimmee, etc.
