Our Local Area
Winter Haven, known for its many lakes and picturesque scenery, is a true haven for those looking to live the “Florida lifestyle”. Winter Haven is home to the 24-canal connected Chain of Lakes, making it a mecca for watersports such as boating, waterskiing, paddle boarding and jet skiing. Visitors and residents enjoy various activities: fishing, eco tours, airboat tours, golf courses, lakeside dining, aviation tours, and drinking craft beer at the local brewery.
Winter Haven is also home to the theme park LEGOLAND, Cypress Gardens, Bok Tower Gardens, the historic Ritz Theatre, Theatre Winter Haven, and the Auburndale Speedway. The Winter Haven Fieldhouse and Conference Center will be the official practice location of the NBA’s Lakeland Magic, Orlando’s G-League team, and another spectacular addition to the area.
We are centrally located just 30 minutes from Disney World, 1.5 hours to Cocoa Beach and 1.5 hours to Clearwater Beach.
Winter Haven is known as a Renaissance city, undergoing a revitalization of its historic downtown district. Winter Haven is future-focused, while still holding on to its authentic roots to create a unique destination.
