WINTER PARK, FLORIDA. CITY OF CULTURE AND HERITAGE




The motto of the City of Winter Park is "City of Culture and Heritage." It is an appropriate designation for this great little city in the midst of the greater Orlando urban area.

It is amazing that such a quiet place exists so near to the bustle of Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. It's Park Avenue shopping district is a wonderful place to spend a day or a week. It's also a great place to live.

The city has many historic buildings and prides itself on preserving most of them in liveable condition or as community gathering places. Winter Park is also home to Rollins College, a leading liberal arts institution.

May is one of favorite months in Florida. This year not so much, however, because many of us are staying at home because of the global virus pandemic. The weather is great, and we enjoy our time at home by reading and getting caught up on chores. April was warmer than usual. Most of our snowbirds have gone back north this month, but some are staying in their Florida homes during the pandemic. No restaurants are open yet for inside dining. Some are offering take out or delivery services.
