Lakeland

Just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of Orlando’s attractions, hundreds of lakes dot the Central Florida countryside, providing some of the best bass fishing in the country as well as plenty of opportunity for boating and other watersports. Those who want to keep their feet firmly on the ground will find hundreds of exceptional golf courses in this region.

Charming villages dot Central Florida; in places such as LakeWaters, Winter Haven, Polk City, and Babson Park, visitors may explore small-town America and find interesting architecture and antiques.
