  • This is a nice place to spend an afternoon. Lots of shops to browse through and the art work is something to see.  more »
  • Almost every structure in the downtown area of Lake Placid Florida has a mural. Beautiful artwork! Every scene tells a story. Don't drive past without stopping!  more »
  • I never knew it was possible to do this review but since we lived in Lake Placid for 24 years I will definitely have a go at it. The murals offer a great way to get out and walk around and see some gr...  more »

  • Cool place if you have time and are close by this place is not to miss. But be me sure you have some time. I could have spent all day looking around
  • The murals of Lake Placid Florida are an experience not be missed. Several recently added murals are beautiful. There are 47 historic murals, 17 one of a kind trash containers all companion pieces to the murals, and 49 bird plaques all over the business district. Come visit the Town of Murals that Reader's Digest named "America's Most Interesting Town".
  • Great example of Public Art in the Town of Murals - Lake Placid, Florida. These are just a few of the dozens of murals around town. As an owner of several rental units, land, and a home in Highlands County, I have been apart of the community since 2001. With that said, I'm still a fan of the murals and have "walked the town" each time I make it to Lake Placid. Dozens and dozens of wonderful murals – some as large as 175 by 30 feet and others filling several stories on downtown Lake Placid buildings – are painted throughout the town. Pick up a guide ($3) to these murals at the Chamber of Commerce - where there's a 10-minute video you will thoroughly enjoy - and then take a leisurely drive or casual stroll to see the story of cattle drives, of Lake Placid’s pioneers, of Native Americans who lived 10,000 years ago, of sandhill cranes and the citrus industry, and larger-than-life local residents like lady rancher Jennie Reninger who was so good with a bullwhip she could snap a cigarette out of your mouth from 10 feet away – one of the earliest anti-smoking campaigns, from what is advertised in the guide. You haven't visited Lake Placid if you don't visit the murals. Highly recommended - 5 stars and an almost free ($3 for the guide) experience. My recommendation is to walk the mural route. It's a much more enjoyable experience. /s/ William E. Lewis Jr., Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
