ADD TO FAVORITES
Stay in central Winter Haven and visit several theme parks on one vacation.

Winter Haven is a community located between Tampa and Orlando in central Florida. The community is nestled among 16 canal-connected freshwater lakes. 

Nearby, visitors enjoy Bok Tower Gardens and Fantasy of Flight, both just minutes away.  With Disney World, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld and Universal Studios all within an hour's drive, its moderate motel rates make it a perfect "home base" for vacations. In addition, LEGOLAND opened in Fall 2011, replacing Cypress Gardens. 

Residents and vacationers enjoy music festivals and drama and dance performances at Theatre Winter Haven and the Polk State College's 500-seat auditorium. Winterfest, which includes boat and holiday parades, concerts and caroling in the park, is just one event that helps to provide the excitement that makes Winter Haven a rare blend of cultural diversity and exhilarating festivity.
