Being lakeside is not just a location, it's a lifestyle here in Winter Haven. With 24 canal-connected lakes, 55 lakes that touch the City of Winter Haven and 554 lakes in Polk County, there is pretty much a lake everywhere you look. In fact the greater Winter Haven area boasts 55 miles of coastline and 1,100 lakefront parcels.
You can travel from one side of Winter Haven to the other without every leaving your boat. Canal connectivity means countless hours of water skiing, boating, fishing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, tubing, fly boarding and wake-boarding. If you want to slow down from the fast-paced water recreation, you can take peaceful tours of the lakes on pontoon boats, paddle-boards and more.
Winter Haven is also home to the world famous Cypress Gardens Water Ski Team. They perform periodically for free to the public on Lake Silver in downtown. To learn more about their month schedule of performances visit cypressgardenswaterskiteam.com.
