The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art and the Mead Botanical Gardens are two of the city's top attractions. In addition, antique and art shows are never hard to find.
The best time to visit Winter Park is in early spring when the temperatures are climbing but haven't reach that level of suffocating heat that central Florida is known for. Late fall is also a nice time and you'll find a similar climate.
