As an insurance professional I talk to a lot of people who are new to our area. I know how hard it can be to figure out what fun things there are to do. So I want to share some of the things my family enjoys and maybe we'll see you there. We live in Winter Haven so that's where this is focused but we often find ourselves in Lakeland, Lake Wales or elsewhere in Polk County that we want to share about. If you see me or our mascot Josie, the Shetland Sheep Dog, be sure to say hi.
Saturday July 15th- Saturday mornings are for hanging around downtown, Winter Haven. Haven Coffee Roasters has a Butter Beer Latte that is magical. Then we'll be checking out Winter Haven Farmers Market (next to Grove Roots). My kids are always excited to get crepes, so I’m excited to see Temple Treats will be there this weekend.
We’ll be trying beat the heat by heading to the springs. Specifically we’ll be heading to Kings Landing to take the inflatable kayaks out on Rock Spring Run. It’s truly beautiful and a great way to beat the heat. We’ll bring tubes to tie up to the kayaks. It should be a great day.
Sunday, July 16th we’ll be swimming at our community pool and grilling out with friends in the evening. But if you don’t have plans or a pool take a look at the Lake Eva Aquatics Center in Haines City. We’re lucky to be a part of the Triton’s Swim team that meets at the Lake Eva Aquatics Center and love the facilities.
If you see us out and about with Josie the Shetland Sheep Dog stop and say hi.
