Looking to enjoy the Floridian sunshine without the noise, hustle and bustle of International Drive and the centre of Orlando? Well, Haines City is the perfect place to stay. Only twenty minutes from Disney World Resort Florida. Only thirty minutes from Univeral Studios Florida, Sea World, International Drive and some of the finest shopping outlets that Orlando has to offer. Haines City is quiet, peaceful and the perfect place to get away from it all whilst still being within a stones throw of the most popular tourist destinations in the state.
The beaches of the Atlantic and Gulf coast are both only an hour away and Bush Gardens at Tampa is also an easy drive away.
But the delights of the cities are not the only things to do in Haines City and the surrounding area.
If you want the experience of the Florida wetlands airboat rides without travelling to the Everglades, then you can always go five miles to Lake Hamilton where Captain Fred's Airboat Nature Tours can get you up close and personal with the native creatures of the Florida lakes and swamps.
If State Parks are more your speed, then the Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park in Haines City could be just what you want to explore. For wine connoisseurs there is the True Blue Winery only 4 miles away in Davenport.
Rather spend your time exploring a beautifully preserved estate from 1915? Then the Mackay Gardens and Lakeside Preserve at Lake Alfred could be right up your alley. Looking to keep the kids entertained without a trip to Disney? Well then, you might want to check out the Dinosaur Playground Bounce House in Dundee, only six miles away from Haines City.
Plus there is also the Ridge Scenic Highway for those that enjoy a long drive through stunning countryside.
