Hotels in Winter Garden, a city 14 miles west of Orlando, make a great base for exploring the theme parks and other major tourist attractions of the region. However, with its historic downtown, interesting museums, and reputation as the cultural capital of West Orange County, Winter Garden is also a fine destination in its own right. A setting on the shores of Lake Apopka, the third-largest lake in Florida, adds to its appeal.
Visiting Winter Garden
You can travel from Orlando International Airport to any Winter Garden hotels through various modes of transport. You can rent a car from one of the on-site companies or numerous other rental companies based close to the airport. Take a taxi from Level 1 of Terminals A and B, or arrange shared van services in advance. You can also use a combination of two or more Central Florida Regional Transit Authority buses, starting your journey at the bus stop on Level 1 of Terminal A. Check into your hotel, then head to the Winter Garden Downtown Historic District with more than 20 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. One of these is the Winter Garden Heritage Museum, housed in a circa-1918 train depot. It showcases the city`s heritage as a citrus farming center and railroad hub. The district also offers a farmers market every Saturday morning and features the Garden Theater, a refurbished movie theater that now hosts performing arts events. Enjoy the sunny climate during a walk or bike ride along the West Orange Trail, a 22-mile route through Winter Garden and neighboring communities. If you arranged Orlando hotel deals with theme parks in mind, head to Disney World®, Wet `n Wild, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, SeaWorld, or Universal Studios. All are easy to reach with Winter Garden rental cars, as are many golf courses, shopping malls, and other attractions.
