Located between Tampa and Lakeland, Plant City was named after railroad developer Henry B. Plant. The town is known as the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World and hosts the annual Florida Strawberry Festival. Stretching back more than 80 years, the festival bursts with midway hilarity, on-stage entertainment (much of it free), livestock and, of course, plenty of ways to eat strawberries. There even is a footrace for those who haven’t gotten carried away with too much food. While in town, don’t miss the Plant City Bing Rooming House Museum, which promotes the proud heritage of one of only two National African-American Landmarks in Hillsborough County. Both were established to preserve African American history.
