Park Avenue in Winter Park is one of Florida’s most unique and flourishing communities where you can enjoy a one-of-a-kind shopping experience that you won’t get from the malls and outlets.
The charming community is home to popular shops including Alex and Ani, Lilly Pulitzer and Williams-Sonoma as well as local boutiques like Tuni where you can find cutting-edge, fashion-forward collections of clothing, shoes and accessories from well-known and up-and-coming designers.
