Wellington is considered a higher end community in Florida, but with the housing collapse in Florida, it has become good value. Good sized homes in nice communities with A rated schools. There are plenty of events in the town such as free summer concerts, great parks and a terrific community center.
Wellington is known for its equestrian community and hosting equestrian events, notably show jumping, hunting, dressage and polo.
