Just a stone’s throw from the excitement of Orlando, Winter Garden is the hidden gem of Central Florida! It’s a town with a long history and a bright future. Once the citrus capital of the world and a nationally known fishing tourism destination, Winter Garden has transformed itself into a destination for families, foodies, athletes, and artists.
The hub of activity is Historic Downtown Winter Garden – home to some of the top-rated restaurants in Central Florida, America’s favorite farmers market, museums, parks, the Garden Theatre, and the West Orange Trail. The charming brick storefronts are populated by local businesses offering everything from candy to home-wares to haircuts. It plays host to community celebrations and regional athletic events throughout the year. Don’t miss the chance to spend a sunny Saturday morning downtown!
“A charming little city with a juicy past!”
Winter Garden is ideally situated on the south shore of Lake Apopka – Florida’s fourth largest lake and one of the state’s early tourist attractions. It is the bridge that connects the best of “old Florida” (e.g. springs, farms, nature) and the excitement of “new Florida” (e.g. theme parks, cities, international transit hubs). While this small town is a destination in and of itself, it is also the perfect starting point for adventures all around Central Florida. There is never ever a shortage of things to do here!
