Just fifteen minutes north of Orlando, Maitland Florida is a town filled with shops, parks, and lakes. This vibrant community is home to historic buildings, museums, and festivals. While Maitland Florida Bed and Breakfasts are an ideal choice for travelers interested in visiting Orlando and Central East Florida, the town itself is also worth a look.
The Maitland Art Center was founded as an art colony in 1938 and is known for its unique Mayan and Aztec sculptures and bas relief. While the building is fascinating in its own right, the exhibits of American arts and crafts are the real draw. The William H. Waterhouse House Museum features exhibits on local history and a carpentry shop museum.
The Cornell Fine Arts Museum in nearby Winter Park features one of the oldest and most impressive art collections in Florida. The Morse Museum of American Art features a comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, including jewelry, pottery, leaded-glass windows and lamps; also on exhibit is the chapel interior designed for the 1893 World's Colombian Exposition in Chicago.
Each spring, the Florida Film Festival brings thousands of people to Maitland to see Fresh Squeezed Indies. There are parties, workshops, and lots of opportunities to see good films. Another big draw is the Maitland Art Festival - a fine art show and sale in Lake Lily Park. The Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities is held each year in January.
