The historic downtown, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, is a favorite destination, with shops and restaurants situated along the award-winning West Orange Trail, part of the 250-mile Coast to Coast (C2C) Connector Trail across Central Florida. If you’re a cycling enthusiast, this is the place for you.

Bob and Pam suggested we take a road trip to Winter Garden for the shopping and the Christmas lighting. We found the area very attractive, the lights display was very nice and the on-street dining (pizza) was just what we needed. We did have an opportunity to people watch and shop (more than Bob and I wanted).
However, besides capturing the train depot and the decorations for the season, we did check out the interior of the historic Edgewater hotel the hotel has undergone a historic restoration to provide guests with as much of the original 1927 ambiance as possible while making modern comforts such as climate control and wireless internet as unobtrusive as possible. From the antique sinks and fixtures to the original 1926 Otis elevator, we learned it is not like any other in Orlando.
