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.

Where to stay

Because Winter Haven sits in prime tourist territory between Orlando and Tampa, the city offers a wider range of accommodations than almost any other urban area in the country. Many inns in Winter Haven allow pets and provide access to private swimming pools or small stretches of sandy beach. To escape the crowds, explore the area's vacation rentals. Ask about package deals; many rentals incorporate discounted tickets to the nearby theme parks as part of the deal.
