Due to the fact that this small city is host to so many small lakes, as well as the larger Lake Apopka, you can imagine that much of the time spent by the citizens of this town is on the water doing many of the various activities available. In addition to the water activities, there are also many other points of attraction. Some of these include the Luther F. Tilden house, the West Orange Trail, Winter Garden Historic Downtown District, Winter Garden Heritage Museum, and the Winter Garden Railroad Museum. With such a rich history in the Central Florida community, it should serve as no surprise that there are so many historic points of interest to be explored by its residents. If shopping is more of your thing, Historic downtown Winter Garden is home to a wide variety of mom and pop stores, restaurants, café’s and a performing arts venue. You can also travel further south to Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves and find more of your name brand storefronts for browsing.
As far as education for children goes, there are several schools to choose from, although they are all pretty much in line with each other in terms of rating. Tildenville, Dillard Street and Maxey Elementary all scored 6 out of 10 when compared to the national average. This isn’t a horrible statistic, but there are more desirable schools in the Orlando area that your child could attend. However, West Orange High School is much more impressive with a score of 8 out of 10 and Lake Whitney Elementary scores a perfect 10 out of 10. Just make sure you are in the right school district when you make the decision to move to this small suburb of Orlando.
