Lake Wales

3.6
Thick with lush greenery, Lake Wales embodies "old" Florida. The town of just over 11,000 is known for its small collection of historical Florida homes and businesses painted in bright colors, as well as its murals. Parks bursting with tropical plants and flowers often host concerts and events. The natural wonders of the area, particularly around Lake Kissimmee, attract outdoor enthusiasts to the many activities offered in and around the town, such as airboat tours, camping, and fishing. Lake Wales is in Central Florida. Make the most of your holiday in Lake Wales by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our United States visit planner.
