Winter Park: Fairbanks

Not quite a college town

Rollins College is just down the street, and while Park Avenue might be the most tranquil alternative to studying in the quiet library, the places where you’ll see the coed set getting their drink, grub and groove on are on Fairbanks Avenue. This ’hood isn’t as walkable as the rest of Winter Park, but a quick drive down Fairbanks and up Orange Avenue is revealing. Sure, there are places to go when your parents are in town – Ravenous Pig, anyone? – but the indie allure of this section of Winter Park is in its long-standing gems alongside new places to munch and mingle.
