For your situation Winter Garden hands down. Both these areas are very nice and both seem to offer comparable benefits. Since all things are pretty much even you should pick Winter Garden just for the convenience of commuting to your job. With gas prices the way they are, I think that give Winter Garden the definitive advantage since Winter Springs is substantially longer commute.

They are very good. Downtown Winter Garden has some fantastic local eateries and a great farmers market on the weekend. The Winter Garden has chain resteraunts which are also very good and a good selection of shopping.

Not sure why you have a "red flag" on Winter Springs - depending on where in Winter Springs one is in, one has pretty quick access to Hwy. 417 and I-4, as well as major arteries such as Hwy 434, Hwy 436, Red Bug Road, and Tuscawilla Drive. Winter Garden has quicker access to main highways, true, but that also means more congestion. W.S. is close enough to shopping/businesses to not feel isolated, but it's also out enough to enjoy the open areas, pastureland, and wooded areas that makes it feel like one is in the country, which is part of its appeal for Orlando's city-dwellers.
