Summertime (and really, anytime) the living is easy at The Alfond Inn at Rollins, the award-winning boutique hotel in the heart of historic Winter Park. The new Summer Memories package is great for visitors looking to stay cool and cultured in this historic, lake-filled city.
Start by exploring three concurrent art exhibitions this summer at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins: “Mexican Modernity: 20th-Century Paintings from the Zapanta Collection,” “Mediated Reality: Cityscapes by Photorealists” and“Shifting Perspectives: Art by the Students of the Art Time Outreach Program.”
The cultural immersion continues at the hotel where numerous pieces from the Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art fill the public spaces. The Alfond Inn at Rollins is the only hotel in the U.S. that serves as a formal extension of a fine arts museum. Visitors won’t want to miss the monthly Happy Hour Art Tours, offered at 5:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month. The tours are complimentary and open to the public.
Then cool off with a classic Scenic Boat Tour on Winter Park’s chain of canals and lakes. Afterwards, there is complimentary wine and cheese waiting in the guestroom. The complimentary Valet Parking included in the package makes it easy to forget about the car and explore the walkable downtown on foot. It’s just a two block stroll to Park Avenue’s array of boutiques and sidewalk cafes.
