Default Who live in or near Winter Haven Fla?

My good friend from NS is visiting Fla. and she is in Winter Haven, 45 mins. from Orlando.
I seem to remember someone on CruiseMates mentioning Winter Haven, was it you?

I believe that Ray does live close to that area. I live about two and a half hours away.

My friend is visiting her friend, who is a Snow Bird from Halifax, wintering in Winter Haven.
She was not impressed that it rained yesterday as soon as they got to the pool, so they went shopping instead!

I think it is a conspiracy of the retailers in the area! Happens all the time if it rains stores get busy.

I am too familiar with Winter Haven. It is located east of Lakeland. It is where Legoland Land is. That should give good intertainment for the visiter.

I too, live in Lakeland, and as noted above, Winter Haven is only about 20 minutes East of here. Very nice town!
