  • Looks like a professional artist did all the paintings. They offer a history of the city, and have incredible scenes. Worth the stop.  more »
  • First go on a Sunday when the traffic is a little less, second take the time to explore you wouldn't want to miss any of the Murals. Most of the murals cover the whole side of the building on which th...  more »
  • When it comes to the murals of Lake Placid. I am absolutely taken aback. It's so beautiful and I can tell they put a lot of time into the work to make their city or town pleasing to the eye.  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.
