Beaches (Max Beach)
Max Beach isn’t just like any other beach; it’s a lake. Max Beach is the first and only beach that I’ve ever heard of to be made at a lake. It has slides that you can go down into the water. It has tons of shells and it is very fun. It’s nice safe fun with light waves but all of the excitement.

The scenery is pleasing in all of its majestic beauty. There are ponds with pretty animals like ducks swans. And the tower’s beauty cannot be justified by the word outstanding; glorious would be a better word. So the tower and the gardens are both beaming with beauty.

More Attractions : More Attractions Kelly Park
Kelly Park is a beautiful park near Winter Haven. It is actually in a place called “Apopka” or “Apopka Springs”. But this is not just a fun nature park; it’s most unique feature is “Rock Springs”. Running through Kelly Park is a beautiful spring that you can swim through. There are two parts of the spring separated by a swimming hole in the middle. But if you’re not going down in a tube you should watch out. The first half of the spring is full of rocks (only the first half). So, this could make for a fun game of “Dodge-the-Rock” or a painful toe-stubbing adventure. But, if you go in a tube, that should be no problem, and the scenery along-side the spring is beautiful.
Lego Land is coming to Winter Haven. They will open in October 2011. The City Commission of Winter Haven is working on a new economic plan to best serve the potential customers that will be drawn here by Lego Land. It is replacing Cypress Gardens and will be on a beautiful, large peace of land.
