  • Extraordinary effort of the town to depict their history through murals. We got honked at for driving too slow, honked at for stopping to stare, and honked at for not taking our turn at a 4-way stop b...  more »
  • We've driven through Lake Placid on US 27 many times, but didn't know about its wealth of murals until a friend mentioned it to us recently. We made another trip up there and realized that the town is...  more »
  • It is easy to walk around downtown to see most of the murals and painted trash containers. Go to the Chamber of Commerce/Welcome Center at 18 North Oak to view a short video of the artwork and get mor...  more »
  • 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.
  • 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".
  • If you have never visited Lake Placid, FL city of murals you are really missing some beautiful art. There are too many buildings to count with murals painted on one side or another...a must to see.
  • What a great getaway place stay a week or just a weekend young or older there is something for everyone! A great little town with that true small town feeling!
