When I am planning my vacations, I love to ditch the tourist spots for a few local gems that make you feel a part of the community. In Florida, the Historic District of Winter Garden will do just that! Located a few miles from the parks and close to Global’s vacation homes, you will want to make this spot a to-do on your list.
Downtown Winter Garden is filled with locally owned shops and restaurants that make it the perfect place to visit. We have a few recommendations for you to try when visiting! First, shop in the many locally owned businesses downtown. Find the perfect decor for your house at Adjectives. Go grab a coffee or tea at Axum or try the Winter Garden Pizza Company for some lunch. After that, let the kids run around in the fountain downtown. One of our favorites is the Chef’s Table. Sample all different kinds of tapas here and pair them with a fantastic wine or beer.
If you’re looking for a great dinner, look no further than Plant Street Market. This open air market features local vendors that offer food, drinks and more. Grab an ice cold beer at Crooked Can Brewing Company and pair it with a gourmet burger from Five Thymes Five. You can also grab a roll of sushi from Jodo sushi- one of our favorites. If you’re vegan, visit Press’d Juice Bar for an amazing array of vegan eats. Whatever you want, Plant Street Market is sure to have it!
