Winter Park, founded by wealthy New England industrialists in the late 1800s as a resort destination, continues to draw visitors from around the world with its mild, temperate winters, museums, golf course, chain of lakes, scenic bout tours, bike trails, art festivals, and beautiful, brick-lined Park Avenue.

Winter Park is home to the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, which hosts the largest collection of Tiffany glass in the world, and draws tens of thousands of visitors every year to the Bach Festival, Sidewalk Art Festival, and Winter Park Concours d’Elegance.
Every Saturday until 2 p.m. a popular Farmer’s Market is held at 200 West New England Avenue in Winter Park, just around the corner from Park Avenue. It features indoor and outdoor vendors and is held at a renovated 1920s freight train depot.
Winter Park also has an Amtrak train depot located on Morse Avenue, next to a beautiful park area right off of Park Avenue. It is used by the Silver Star and Silver Meteor passenger trains.
