Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida

See more info/photos from our visit to Rollins College on Facebook, click here.

Although other parts of the Orlando area are new and modern, as you enter the historic downtown of Winter Park, it’s quaint, sophisticated, a touch artsy and plenty of character. The town has eclectic and interesting restaurants and shops as well as stores that we all know (Restoration Hardware, Alex and Ani) all within a stones throw from Rollins College. And then you enter Rollins and you feel like you are in a Spanish village. Wow, what a wonderful surprise!
