Why Winter Haven

Authentic, affordable and full of opportunity

winterhaven2.0: It’s time to take another look.

With a reputation built on citrus and Southern belles, many people incorrectly assume that Winter Haven is just another small town in Central Florida. But over the last few decades, Winter Haven has evolved into an emerging urban center. It is the home of Polk State College. CSX has just finished construction of the most technologically advanced Intermodal Logistics Center in the country (the Central Florida ILC) within the city limits. The second-largest LEGOLAND® in the world,  LEGOLAND® Florida, has opened its incredible resort hotel within just a few miles of downtown. Florida Polytechnic launched its first class in the fall of 2014. And with more than 50 freshwater lakes, incredible weather and a low cost of living, The Chain of Lakes City offers its residents a uniquely affordable, high quality of life.

Strategically-located between Tampa and Orlando in the heart of Florida’s I-4 high-tech corridor, Winter Haven’s assets go far beyond its natural beauty. Boasting a state-of-the-art fiber network, well-developed infrastructure and a talented workforce, downtown Winter Haven has all the necessary components to make your business successful.
