Located midway between the Tampa and Orlando markets, Lake Wales is a small community that’s big on family-friendly fun. Voted the “friendliest small town in Florida,” Lake Wales is home to many golf courses, lakes for fishing and water sports, fitness trails, a skydiving center, community parks, a community theater, an Arts Center, Historic Bok Tower with its Hammock Hollow Children’s Garden, and LEGOLAND Florida is just 20 minutes away. Lake Wales sits atop Florida’s topographical ridge, which is home to many plants found nowhere else on Earth. When you’re looking for something to do on weekends, you’ll want to check out the annual Lake Wales Arts Show, Pioneer Days, or The Orange Blossom BBQ…all of which are staged on the shores of beautiful Lake Wales lake. There also are monthly antique car shows, the International Carillon Festival at Bok Tower every year, the annual Mardi Gras parade and party, and the Sunset & Symphony each holiday season at Bok Tower.
