Welcome to Wellington, FL

Wellington was a Planned Unit Development before it incorporated into a town.  It was divided into subdivisions by lot size and use.  It is different from most other Florida Towns as individuals purchased their lots and used any builder they chose for their home construction.  It was not a cookie-cutter community.  Most areas build out by large developers who gave buyers 10 or so models to choose from.

Wellington became known as one of the best family communities in the state of Florida.  subsequently it also became the equestrian capital of the world in the winter.  the equestrian subdivisions give the overall community much less density.  Traffic is non-existent.

I will review several subdivisions so you can understand the diversity of the community.
