Winter Park is a prestigious Orlando neighborhood village just a short ride, but a world apart, from the congested Orlando tourist zone!
Our Winter Park tour immerses you in the history, lakefront mansions and delights of Park Avenue, a European styled “high street” line with towering oaks, quaint shops, cafes and delicious restaurants.
Winter Park received its name as the winter time home of the country’s northern elite families. Over the years, Winter Park has continued to be one of the top shopping tour destinations for locals to enjoy its distinctive charm and cuisine. Rollins College, alma mater of many distinguished alumni, including Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers fame, lies at the southern end of Park Avenue. Our Winter Park Tour allows you to sample all these sites, scene and beauty of this unique Hamlet.
On this Original Orlando shopping tour, you’ll have a time to explore Winter Park’s shops and cafes at your own pace, a destination for many of Orlando’s local residents looking to experience a bit of European cachet in Central Florida.
Afterwards we’ll make a brief stop at the Nieman Marcus Last Call outlet store on your Winter Park tour before bringing you and your treasures back to your hotel!
