Strategically located in the heart of Central Florida, Polk County is well-served by the Interstate 4 corridor just 25 miles east of Tampa and 35 miles southwest of Orlando. Because of this centralized position in the state, Polk County is surrounded by a 100-mile radius that supports nearly eight million people—one of the densest areas in the entire Southeast. This fertile region claims the second-largest area devoted to farmland in Florida and continually ranks among the state’s most productive agricultural counties. Tourism is another important industry, with throngs of visitors drawn to world-class attractions like the historic Bok Tower Gardens and Cypress Gardens, Florida’s original theme park. Polk County has also emerged as a preferred venue for competitive sports, including spring training headquarters for major baseball teams.

For first-rate career and vocational training in more than 50 exciting programs, the school district offers two technical centers. Those who are interested in a private education will find opportunities on every level, from preschool through college. The options for higher education close to home are abundant, including public universities and elite private colleges in Polk County and nearby metropolitan centers like Orlando and Tampa. Lakeland is the hub of higher education within the county, home to an extension campus for the University of South Florida, the site of USF’s most aggressive expansion of Information Technology degree programs.

The county is also home to 100,000 acres of pastoral lands that are open to the public for resource-based recreation such as fishing, boating, hunting, nature study, bird watching, and passive recreation. Nearly 555 freshwater lakes and numerous rivers make this area a haven for boaters and anglers. In fact, Polk County has long been dubbed the “Water Ski Capital of the World.” Golfers will find scores of public and private courses where they can perfect their backswing.

Polk County and Central Florida provide a world of attractions that are designed to entertain and educate visitors of all ages. Cypress Gardens Adventure Park stands in a class of its own as Florida’s first themed park.

Haines is another city in Polk County that showcases a charming historic Main Street, where many of the structures were built in the early 1900s.

One vintage structure that was once a thriving business is currently home to the Haines City Community Theater and the Northeast Polk County Historical Society.

Justly proud of its handsome new City Center complex, Polk City draws newcomers to a progressive community that is dedicated to quality growth and development. In fact, “Building Today for a Better Tomorrow” is Polk City’s declared motto. Originally founded by Isaac Van Horn as a hub for his vision of lucrative oil mining and production, the community languished with the Great Depression and the lack of any real oil deposits in the area. By 1960, the population had diminished to about 200. The establishment of Polk City as a town left the municipality free of all debt, which began the process of steady recovery. The designation of Polk City as a city in 2005 reflects four decades of resurgence as a vital community. Today, the city is home to more than 2,000 residents with nearly 11,000 in its 33868 zip code. Those who appreciate the intimacy of a community that is just beginning to catch its stride will find a welcoming home in Polk City.
