Enrichment, Meet Entertainment

What do you call the Florida destination that offers the best of all worlds? That is close to top attractions, but far from the crowds? That has international flare but southern charm? That is easy to get to but hard to leave?

You may call it Central Florida, but we call it Florida’s Sweetest Spot!

The Lakeland and Winter Haven area of Florida has more than 30 arts and cultural organizations: community theater, opera, symphonies, museums, art guilds, a theatre listed on the National Historic Register (Polk Theatre) and a professional dance company.
