Winter Park is a quaint small city just north of Orlando. The shaded streets of downtown and its shops and restaurants are a nice break from the chaos of the nearby theme parks and massive resorts.
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.
It isn’t much of a surprise that the Wintert Park's biggest attractions is its mountain playgrounds and the huge range of winter sports facilities found here. But don’t let this stop you from coming at other times of the year. Winter park is beautiful no matter the season, with its fun-filled summer festivals and the rich colors of the mountains in fall, it is a great year-round destination to book a vacation home.
For those interested in sports, the town has a huge range of lodging possibilities, from slope-side hotels to ski-in-ski-out condos, which make a great base for making use of the facilities in the surrounding area. The Winter Park lodging in town is surrounded by many restaurants that cater for these cold weather activities, with hearty Mexican or German food, perfect for a meal after spending the day on the slopes. There are also plenty of shops where you can pick up some last minute souvenirs or snow gear.
Winter Park Ski Resort is home to some world-class ski slopes, all of which are located in the 3,000 acres of the park. The terrain is diverse enough for everyone to enjoy, from beginner to expert. Several trails have been identified as ‘historical trails’ thanks to the contributions that certain individuals have made to the area, such as the Mary Jane Trail, Bradley’s Bash and Cranmer. However, this is not the only choice of ski resort in the area, nearby you will also find Ski Granby Ranch, Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center, and Devil’s Thumb Ranch, which offers plenty of trails for cross-country skiers. Once you have had your fill of skiing, other great snow sports on offer include snowboarding, hayrides, snow tubing and dog sledding to name just a few, all of which combined are sure to make for a great Winter Park vacation. The town of Fraser Valley is also nearby, and is a great place to visit on a day trip from your Winter Park vacation rental.
In summer, the resort is transformed. The slopes are covered in vacationers riding the lifts up to the wildflower-covered mountains and admiring the stunning views. You can also visit the surrounding national forest, and feel at one with nature as you explore the many twisting paths. There are over 600 miles of marked trails for mountain biking, and for those that want a bit of an adrenaline rush, ride the alpine slide or have fun on the summer tubing hill. From Winter Park Colorado it is less than an hour to the Rocky Mountain Nation Park, a postcard-worthy location for exploring the great outdoors and home to the world famous Continental Divide mountain range.
