While the city of Winter Haven retains its small-town flare, its cultural and entertainment offerings continue to grow and you won’t run out of things to do. Spend the day jet skiing, kayaking, or paddleboarding on the beautiful Chain of Lakes. Or, have a date night at the Union Taproom, Grove Roots Brewing Co., or a romantic downtown restaurant such as Arabellas. If you’re interested in a relaxing stroll while appreciating nature's beauty, Bok Tower Gardens offers tranquil strolls through 50-acres of meandering gardens along with a famed neo-Gothic Singing Tower, daily carillon concerts, and plenty of scenic spots for a picnic.

For additional recreation, take advantage of sports and fitness activities at the Chain O’ Lakes Complex, or spend an afternoon golfing at the Lake Ashton Golf Club. LEGOLAND Florida, Winter Haven's destination for kid-centric rides, shows, and attractions, is a mere five miles away but don’t worry - Your new home is nicely hidden from all the theme park excitement!

Close to home, you'll also find all of your grocery and daily conveniences. Your local Publix Super Market at Winter Haven Square is just four miles away, the Walmart Supercenter about six miles from home, and Eagle Ridge Mall a mere five-mile drive.
