Winter Park is a city unlike any other in Central Florida. Between the upscale shopping and dining experiences, festivals, and old-world charm, it's easy to see why Winter Park calls itself the "city of arts and culture." Winter Park is home to Rollins College, the first recognized college in the State of Florida. Every Saturday, downtown Winter Park hosts a farmer's market where visitors can pick up fresh produce, coffee beans, or an early morning treat. If you need a break from shopping, take a stroll through the 47-acres of Mead Botanical Garden where visitors are invited to explore the grounds for free.
