Winter Haven— The name really says it all
With an average temperature of about 73 degrees, the city truly represents a sanctuary for those escaping colder climates, including the Major League Baseball clubs – the Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians – that held spring training in this Polk County community.
In addition to the weather, the former home of the Orange Dome has 45 lakes, 24 of which are connected by navigable canals, within its limits. Even with the potential distractions, however, advancing in school is a top priority. Numbers never tell the entire story, but they do provide an idea of what’s happening. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 83.6 percent of Winter Haven’s residents have graduated from high school, showing that sunshine doesn’t diminish the desire to learn.
