Welcome to our Winter Park neighborhood on this beautiful day! While many well-known celebrities have passed through this storied village over its rich history, probably no one impacted, and was impacted by, Winter Park more than Fred McFeely Rogers, lovingly known the world over to millions of people as the unforgettable host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood for over 50 years now.

Come along on our Mister Rogers Walking Tour as we visit the heart of town where Fred and his lifetime sweetheart, Sara Joanne Byrd Rogers, fell in love while in college and spent many years later in life. You’ll learn the fascinating story of how this humble man from Latrobe, PA connected with Winter Park and began a lifetime ministry of service.

Walk in the same places that Fred and Joanne did through different seasons of their life, and then wrap your visit up with a one-hour boat tour of Winter Park, passing by some of the places that you visited by land and others further away from the walking tour!

Rich was so knowledgeable and had personal interaction with Fred Rogers’ family so his stories were authentic and fact-based. I have always admired Mr Rogers (being from Pittsburgh) but, after this tour, I have a deeper appreciation of him and his contribution to society. Well done.
