Things to Do in Windermere
The Windermere downtown district has become an area where families gather for breakfasts and lunches during the day, ice cream in the afternoon and evenings and the periodic events on Main Street that draw thousands of people. On the fourth Friday of the month Windermere hosts its Food Truck Roundup. Add its Fall Festival, Treebute, Easter Eggstravaganza, Halloween Spooktacular and its Christmas Light Up Windermere and you have a community that prides itself in being family friendly.
Living in Windermere
Windermere is home to many people who could be described as “urban sophisticates,” or people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.
The town’s downtown roundabouts, town greens, bricked streets, extensive landscaping, pedestrian sidewalks and underground utilities provide a quaint downtown area not only for its residents, but for the immediate surrounding area.
Of important note, Windermere is also a town of artists. Windermere has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Windermere’s character.
The Downtown area has the classic of old town charm of Florida with both cobbled and unpaved streets leading to the lakes. The streets are purposely unpaved to prevent runoff of anything into the pristine chain of lakes.
