Lake Wales, Florida is an extraordinarily charming city near the geographical center of the state. The historic district in the heart of the Old Town contains architecture from the 1920s, during Florida’s land boom years. Area attractions include the Lake Wales Art Center, Grove House at Florida’s Natural Visitor Center, Spook Hill, and the world renowned Bok Tower Gardens, a concert venue and a collection of gardens surrounding the “singing” bell tower. The beaches of the Atlantic or Gulf coasts, as well as the metro areas of Tampa and Orlando, are a short drive away from Lake Wales. The subtropical climate of Central Florida delivers enjoyable weather, from the warm and humid summer, to the sunny and breezy winter.
