Day 300 – Winter Park is Little Europe

Day 300 – Winter Park is Little Europe
Little Europe Building

Little Europe Building

Walking down Park Avenue in Winter Park I noticed this building, the Swetman building with the sign “Little Europe” on it. That name is actually quite fitting for the entire Park Avenue area because people often notice that Winter Park’s Park Avenue has a European flair. I think I can agree with that,  this street along with its little stores, quaint cafes and restaurants does come very close to a typical European city (it does remind me a bit of Munich actually). Needless to say, I love the area for that reason (among others).

So Winter Park, within Orlando, is my “Little Europe” and after doing some research I found out that the Winter Park Historical Association offers a Park Avenue/Winter Park Walking Tour. The tour will explain how Winter Park indeed got its nickname of “Little Europe”.

For more information about this tour, please contact the Winter Park Historical Association directly. Here is their contact info:
