High class meets “get to class”

When highfalutin Winter Parkians meet Full Sail university students, the result is an area of town that mixes affordable dining and entertainment with ethnic diversity. Mexican grocery stores and Chinese hot pot within a quick drive of Whole Foods and an art museum? It happens here. It’s likely you’ll spot more pedestrians in this area than in others around town; chalk it up to the mostly car-less Full Sailors, many of whom go to school around the clock. Luckily, with thousands of on-campus students and staff, plenty of vegan fare, art shows, live music and open-mic nights are within reach.
