Our sweet town is a place that we like to say welcomes many. From our wonderful library, Lake Wales Downtown Farmers Market, Cliff's True Value Hardware and good restaurants, it truly is a treasure! Come and visit!

Well it is a small town not much to see. I think its a place you can say been there. We were there on a Saturday and it seem like a ghost town.

We drove around on a Saturday afternoon looking for stuff to do in Lake Wales. We thought the town was cute but really nothing to write home about. The paintings on some of the buildings was awesome.

Just off the main srtreet are a coouple of side streets clearly labeled as an Historic District. It has the feel of old time Florida. The Grand Hotel is closed but hopefully someone will revitalize it and give it new life.

We've visited downtown Lake Wales numerous times. It's a fairly shabby downtown with numerous struggling businesses. Sometimes there are farmer's markets in season or other special events.
