Winter Haven

Trip Planner USA  /  Florida  /  Central Florida  /  Winter Haven

Chain of Lakes City

Winter Haven boasts over 50 lakes within its borders, most notably Florida's famed Chain of Lakes. Connected by a canal lock system, the area surrounding the city's two major chains of lakes teems with native wildlife, including hundreds of different species of birds. Though most nature lovers know it only as one of the world's top spots for bass fishing, the city of about 35,000 is also home to one of the world's biggest theme parks entirely dedicated to the Lego brand of children's toys. Aptly named for its year-round temperate climate, Winter Haven remains a favorite vacation destination, as it's conveniently located near both Orlando's and Tampa's international airports. Use our United States family vacation planner to arrange the details of your trip to Winter Haven and other destinations.
