Thanks to its ideal location, Haines City has become one of the hottest real estate markets in Central Florida. The city lies just west of Orlando and east of Tampa, with both no more than an hour’s drive away.

Golfer’s paradise

A midsized city with small-town charm, Haines City has plenty of attractions and activities. For starters, it’s home to two top-notch golf courses. The Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club is an award-winning 18-hole golf course designed by the venerable Steven Smyers. The 7,200-yard course stretches over a hilly landscape, which makes for a picturesque – and challenging – game. The Sweetwater Golf & Tennis Club, meanwhile, has an 18-hole executive-length course that measures 3,183 yards, designed by Bill Barret.

Events and amenities

Another popular attraction is Lake Eva Park. It has a waterfront banquet hall where you can sample scrumptious food while looking out at the lake’s calming waters. It also has biking and running tails, tennis and basketball courts, a competition-sized pool, and playgrounds. The park has an aquatic center where the entire family can have a splashing good time.

Haines City also has programs that encourage active living. For instance, it has an adult volleyball program that holds league competitions. The city’s recreation department has set aside space for seniors to play table tennis – just bring your paddles and ping-pong balls! There’s a karate program for tots, Zumba classes for adults, and so on.

More of an artistic soul? You’ll be glad to know that the city also holds cultural events and programs. These include everything from dance classes, to ceramics workshops, to oil painting courses, among many others.

Living so near Orlando means you have access to many of its top attractions. Looking to visit the happiest place on Earth? Take a short drive to the world-famous Disney World. Are there movie buffs in the family? They’ll surely love the action-packed rides at the Universal Orlando theme park.

For those who prefer a relaxing day at the beach, you can head over to Tampa Bay, which has miles upon miles of stunning coastline. Nearby cities like Winter Haven have attractions worth visiting, too, such as LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.
