The historic, lake-spangled City of Winter Park is an easy trip away from The Celeste Hotel. You’ll find the heart of the city along Park Avenue, the perfect destination for some much-needed fresh air and retail therapy.

Park Avenue: Downtown Winter Park’s Shopping & Dining Core

A staple of Winter Park and bordering a green space that plays host to concerts, festivals, and other events, Park Avenue is a must-visit on an Orlando-area getaway.

This bustling drag provides access to more than 140 boutique shops, eateries, and cultural attractions. If you’re keen on a little retail therapy, wander your way through such stores as Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Park Avenue Jewelers, Lighten Up!, and Williams-Sonoma. Hungry? Bring that appetite to fine restaurants and cafes such as Briarpatch, Prato, The Wine Room on Park Avenue, Umi Japanese, Le Macaron French Pastries, and Park Avenue Pizza.

Do not forget to head on over to Choulala Fine Pastries.  They are one of our preferred vendors and they offer the best traditional French pastry products of both the salty and sweet varieties.

Another major landmark along Park Avenue is the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of Art, host to the greatest collection anywhere of pieces by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
