There’s no doubt Orlando is a perfect destination for foodies. In the tourist district alone, cuisine includes everything from upscale international dining to instagramable theme park treats. Frequent visitors are of course familiar with the treasures of Restaurant Row and the many gems along International Drive, but this is only a small portion of the delicious food that awaits you in Central Florida. If you’d like to try something new on your next trip, consider a trip to Winter Park.
Discover Winter Park
Winter Park is known for its charming brick roads and beautiful boutiques, and it is also home to some amazing restaurants.

Most of the top restaurants and points of interest can be found along Park Avenue in the historic downtown area, so it is easy for pedestrians to explore.
