We're Your Link to The Chain of Lakes City

Winter Haven real estate and its community is prosperous, yet unpretentious. It's casual, but cultural. It's where "rush hour" lasts about ten minutes.

If you're searching for Winter Haven homes, it is our pleasure to assist you to find your perfect address.

This area was originally platted in 1884 and was first known as Harris Corners. In 1885 became Winter Haven because of its pleasant climate. By the end of the century the population had grown to 400. The City of Winter Haven was incorporated in 1911 and now has an estimated population of over 32,577.

The opening of Cypress Gardens in 1936 ensured the City of Winter Haven's success, and now the former Cypress Gardens site will become Legoland Florida. The largest Legoland Park in the world. The expected opening date is the fall of 2011.

Approximately 1000 new jobs are expected to be created by the opening of Legoland Florida.

Winter Haven also welcomes the announcement of the CSX Intermodal facility and the anticipated business park that will surround it.

 

Begin and end your day where graceful Sand Hill Cranes walk by and tropical birds fly. Sunrise or sunset, Winter Haven is what its name implies. It's a warm place of rest with even warmer people.

Centrally located, Winter Haven is a "Main Street" town that adheres to successful revitalization practices, originated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is a vital community with a growing economy. It boasts of successful businesses, including tourism, agriculture, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, schools and major corporate entities.

 

Though this town may seem traditional at first glance, famed Modern Architect, Gene Leedy, of the Sarasota School of Architecture made Winter Haven his home in the1950s. He continues to create avant garde commercial and residential buildings that enhance Winter Haven, making this an even more treasured community. A recent architectural tour of these structures, sponsored by Main Street Winter Haven and the Department of State, Bureau of Historic Preservation, brings visitors and unique value to Winter Haven.

Winter Haven will now be the new home for LEGOLAND® Florida, coming in 2011. LEGOLAND® Park when opened will offer a unique mix of more than 50 rides, shows and attractions, including spectacular LEGO® models and other interactive elements for the whole family to enjoy together. Major League Baseball teams have called Winter Haven home at Spring Training. Golfing and other sports are also plentiful here.

The Chain of Lakes City, as Winter Haven is also known, is a unique water recreation system, navigable by connected canals. Forty-one lakes are directly in Winter Haven. All of Polk County is a freshwater enthusiast's dream, with more than 550 lakes.

 

After a day on the water, you might enjoy a night on the town. The Arts thrive in Winter Haven. Theatre Winter Haven, the new library, parks, art galleries, The Outdoor Sculpture Competition, The Citrus Festival and an abundance of cultural and creative events are just a short distance away. So are fine or fun dining and everything in between, morning, noon and night. The lifestyle here is unique as the landscape.

Winter Haven is nestled in rolling hills full of citrus trees. Fragrant orange blossoms fill the spring air. They are just a part of the interesting history of this upscale hometown. That tradition continues today, and can take place right in your own backyard. Lush tropical gardens are easy to maintain in the climate of Winter Haven. Pick citrus from your own trees. Lakefront home sites with vistas of marshes and open skies are plentiful. Or let someone else do the landscaping and enjoy the view from your town home or condominium.
