Winter Haven, Florida

A chain of lakes connected by canals with ramps and marinas service to launch boats, sets Winter Haven in Florida apart from any other city in North America. While this setting lends itself to fishing and boating pleasures, it is for water-skiing that Winter Haven has become best known. Dining at one of the fine restaurants along the lakes is another special pleasure that the chain of canals affords. The city is built around this network, so you are never far from cheerful blue water as long as you are in town in Winter Haven.
