Lake Alfred

Lake Alfred was founded by snowbirds escaping the cold of North Dakota, and visitors are welcomed in this small town surrounded by gently rolling hills and agriculture.

Top Things To Do in Lake Alfred

Lake Alfred’s abundant citrus and peach trees are pleasing to the eye. The city’s small-town feel makes it a great day-trip destination during your Central Florida vacation. Whether you’re looking to shop, eat, fish or hike, Lake Alfred has unique offerings for everyone.
