Central Florida’s Polk County is conveniently located between Orlando and Tampa, and an easy drive to Central Florida attractions and the Gulf and Atlantic beaches. Polk County offers something for everyone, including Florida’s newest attractions, LEGOLAND Florida Resort and Safari Wilderness; and some of Florida’s most historic; including Bok Tower Gardens, Westgate River Ranch Resort (the Southeast’s largest dude ranch), and Frank Lloyd Wright’s 13 structures at Florida Southern College. With 554 fresh water lakes, the area offers great fishing, adventurous airboat eco tours and exciting water sports. Wonderful parks, preserves and trails captivate visitors with Polk County’s natural beauty.

Places to Stay in Central Florida

Hotels & Resorts

The new LEGOLAND® Pirate Island Hotel is one of 3 hotels where families are invited to build their dream destination one colorful brick at a time.

If you have dreamed of the Wild West, Westgate River Ranch Resort has just the teepee for you. Luxe teepees and Glamping tents pack all the amenities of a 5-star resort into their canvas topped expanses.

The 16,000-acre Streamsong® Resort might be known for its 3 award-winning golf courses, but that’s not the whole story. With a world-class spa, top-notch dining and onsite activities, there is plenty to do besides golf.

Vacation Rental Homes

Looking for more space and maybe even a private pool? Options for vacation rental homes or Airbnbs in Davenport and Haines City include 2-bedroom villas, 8-bedroom homes, and everything in between. In addition to private pools, Balmoral Resort Florida has an onsite water park, restaurant and bar, while Orlando Attraction Homes offers themed homes with up to 20-bedrooms.

RV Parks and Campgrounds

If you’re a snowbird looking for places to stay in a RV for a few months, or a couple who likes to travel in a luxury Airstream Touring Coach or Travel Trailer, we’ve got vacation resorts and campgrounds for you. Our 2 newest resorts are Resort at Canopy Oaks and Camp Margaritaville, and our newest campground Safari Wilderness Camping, provides a truly unique experience. Orlando SW/Fort Summit KOA is close to all of Central Florida’s major theme parks, and Camp Mack, a Guy Harvey Lodge, Marina and RV Resort is the perfect location for people who enjoy fishing and nature.
