Winter Haven is a community of more than 34,000 people, located in Central Florida between Tampa and Orlando. The gentle rolling hills of Polk County and 45 fresh-water lakes touch or are contained within the City limits. Twenty-four of the lakes are connected by a system of navigable canals better known as "The Chain of Lakes."
Winter Haven will soon be home to the newest Legoland. The main campus of the four-year Polk State College is also located in Winter Haven; and an exciting new program is that of the Business Accelerator, developed by the Polk County Commission and Central Florida Development Council. The Business Incubator, located in downtown Winter Haven, will benefit new companies by offering resources; a national research university (USF Polytechnic) with access to faculty experts; operational infrastructure like office space, equipment and technology; technology consultants; and training programs.
Nearby, visitors enjoy Historic Bok Sanctuary (Bok Tower Gardens) and Fantasy of Flight Air Museum... both just minutes away. Winter Haven is an excellent location to raise a family or to retire and enjoy a wonderful climate. With Disney World, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld and Universal Studios all within an hour's drive, it is a perfect "home base" for vacations, as well.
