And no, Winter Garden is not Windermere.
Winter Garden proper also boasts a homey downtown area with a revived walking tour feel. The area that is known as Winter Garden encompasses a number of zip codes and almost surrounds Windermere on three sides. The borders are almost non-existent in places and some of the kids that have Winter Garden addresses go to school in Windermere. The opposite is true as well as some kids who live in Windermere addresses attend middle or high school in Winter Garden.
The thing to keep in mind is there are a LOT of lakes so there is no straight shot from one part of the area to another.

Winter Garden has much more reasonable home prices. Many very good neighborhoods. South Winter Garden is a bit more up scale than Winter Garden north of Hgwy 50. Down town old Winter Garden was renovated and is absolutely beautifully.
