WELCOME TO POLK COUNTY

WELCOME TO POLK COUNTY

Polk County is in a unique and enviable position – literally – that no other county in Florida can claim. Polk is the fastest growing county in the state. Why? We’re the connecting force between people, places and potential…the crossroads of opportunity. Located between the Orlando and Tampa metro regions along the I-4 corridor, Polk is a blend of rapidly urbanizing growing communities in the northern section. Yet south of State Road 60, which crosses through the midsection of the county, you will find miles of rural ranch and scrub land, left unscathed by development. In Polk, you will find the ideal combination of access, affordability and untapped opportunity for visitors, residents and prospective businesses. Visit Polk County, Florida. It is truly a great place to visit and live.
