Anyone looking at Orlando suburbs will want to make time to see Winter Springs homes. The community is very highly rated and was named on Money Magazine’s Top 100 Places to Live list in 2011. Winter Springs real estate offers great amenities to people of all ages and stages of life. Commuters appreciate the short 20 to 30 commute into Orlando. It’s also a good place to do business. Both the Oviedo-Winter Springs Chamber of Commerce and the Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce have many events that connect local business owners to one another and the local community. They also offer seminars on specific business topics to help members improve their businesses.
Families with children who are considering Winter Springs homes will appreciate the excellent public schools. Students turn in strong scores on state testing, and parents give glowing reviews. Local charter schools are also highly rated. There are also great private schools in the city and the surrounding communities.
There are lots of opportunities for recreation. The Senior Center offers an inexpensive catered lunch on Wednesdays, and seniors gather to relax and exercise in the therapy pool. Weekly activities abound. Take chair yoga or cardio fit, get together with friends to play bridge or bingo, or meet fellow artists at the art group and ceramics class. Youth can join sports teams and learn to fish, too. Summer is full of fun at Camp Sunshine day camp. Adults go to yoga in the park, line dancing, or meet others interested in astronomy at Telescopes at Trotwood Park.
