Winter Haven's Chain O' Lakes
One of the reasons we simply love life in Winter Haven is the legendary Chain O' Lakes, with 16 canal-connected Chain of Lakes. A truly relaxing family experience, we have spent many weekends on the Chain in previous years, but due to recent drought and dry conditions our beautiful lakes and their connecting canals have been high and dry. Summer showers have restored our valued Chain and we were so excited to head to the Chain to salvage what was left of our long weekend. Of course, just as we left the beach the skies opened up and the sun shone through for a gorgeous FL day. We enjoyed a picnic lake-side on Lake Summit and journeyed through Lakes Lulu, Roy, Ship, and Winterset. A wonderful ending to our Labor day weekend, and we are re-charged to take on the week! Want to visit Winter Haven's claim to fame? Catch a Cypress Gardens ski show, enjoy live bands and the best margaritas in town at Harborside or simply take in the lush scenery from La Sertoma Park to Ruby Lake, literally navigate through our town, all by boat! That is why they call this, the City of Lakes!
