Finding a good mens haircut in Winter Haven has been difficult for me, even though I have what I feel is a really easy cut to do.
Recently I decided to try out SportsClips in Winter Haven to see how it was (plus I had a coupon).
Typically, if I go to a barber shop, I’ve got to wait a long time and it’s a more expensive haircut than one of the chains. I just want to get in, get a haircut, and get out.
Often I go to GreatClips. They’re a cheap haircut option. Plus, if you have their app you can book an appointment when you leave your house as well as see how long the wait is.
Lately though, I haven’t been getting a good stylist or haircut there, so I decided to try something new.
SportClips Haircut Review
When you first walk in, there is computer with a touch screen so you can check yourself in and there is a waiting area with a television. I believe there were sports on the screen, hence the name sports clips.
What I like about the check in process is that when you check in, you can choose the stylist you want for your haircut.
Obviously, being my first haircut there, I didn’t know the difference between hair stylists. But I could see how that could be a benefit. Once you find a stylist you like you can pick them everytime.
I’ve had issues with getting a stylist that I know doesn’t cut my hair well but I don’t want to be rude and say “I’d rather somebody else cut my hair”.
This touch screen makes it easy to pick who you want to do you hair. I think SportClips has an App too that allows you to book your haircut and pick your stylist.
SportsClips Haircut Theme
I didn’t wait long before going back for my haircut (less than 5 min.)
The entire theme of the haircut shop is sports related, so they have packages centered around the sports theme as well.
Since it was my first time there, I was upgraded to the “triple play” package for free (not sure if that’s normal, you’d have to ask about it).
This package includes the haircut, a hot teamed towel wrap, and a shampoo with massage.
The staff was very friendly as well and they all seemed happy to be there. The entire place had a good energy.
Overall, this was a good experience.
The haircut wasn’t as cheap as Greatclips but the environment was better, the people were friendly, and most importantly… my haircut turned out good.
If you’re looking for a good men’s haircut in Winter Haven, I would definatley recommend giving SportsClips a shot.
If you’re just visiting and are looking for a good haircut near Legoland, it’s also a great option for that since it’s so close. (Just turn left when you exit legoland and it’s right in one of those plaza’s on the left).
If you’re looking for a mens haircut near winter haven and are willing to go to Lake Wales, there’s a good barber shop you can try called The Lab Barbershop.
Hope this was helpful to somebody. If you know of any other good haircut options in Winter Haven, please leave a comment below.
Looking for an adrenaline rush and maximum intensity? If so, you’ll want to check out the Florida Skydiving Center in Lake Wales. Even though this is a Winter Haven website, this is a great local option if you’re in Winter Haven and willing to make a small drive for some intense adventure. (Besides, you can seeWinter Haven when you’re up there.)
So kick back and walk through my FIRST TIME skydiving experience with me to see if this is something you might want to do. If you’re like me, skydiving is one of those things you put off because there always seemed to be something better you could spend the money on. Now that I’ve had my first jump, I definitely would have taken the plunge much sooner had I known how incredible it was.
It’s never too late though, just ask my friend Fred who did his first jump when he was 84 yrs. young. (pictures coming soon)
If you’re looking for something fun to do with the family that actually gets them outdoors and off their electronic devices, Simmers Young Park is a great choice. Not only is it great fun and a way to bring the family together, but it’s also absolutely free! If you haven’t visited the park before and are looking for something quick and easy to do because the kids are whining “we’re bored”… it’s a a great option for free outdoor things to do in Winter Haven.

When Legoland closes it’s doors and kicks you out, you’re gonna be hungry. Maybe you’re exiting the park and on your phone right now looking for the closest places to eat near Legoland. If you’re a visitor looking for a convenient place to eat, this post is for you.
Not only are these restaurants near Legoland, they are the absolute closest ones to the theme park. Every single restaurant on this list is less than 3 miles (4.83km) from the LEGOLAND entrance.
Perhaps you were too busy waiting in line or walking from the back of the theme park because you didn’t follow our Legoland Waterpark Hack (#5 of our post 13 Things to Do When You Visit Legoland), or maybe you purposely didn’t eat so you could save a few dollars by eating somewhere cheaper.
Regardless of the reason for your predicament, we’ve got you covered. Below are the closest places to eat and their approximate distance from the famous Merlin Entertainment theme park.
When possible, we have inserted links to their menu. A few don’t have menus online and in those cases there are links to their websites, Facebook pages, or a picture of their physical menu.
This post is organized differently than others, it’s literally intended for people leaving Legoland and looking for somewhere to eat so it’s organized as described below…
When you exit the Legoland theme park, you’ll come to a stop light on Cypress Gardens Blvd.
This post based on which direction you go at the light (left, straight, or right.)
If you’re on the north side of Winter Haven and are looking for a storage facility, I recently had the pleasure of touring Barton Storage on Havendale in Auburndale. This storage location just opened and it’s one of the top self storage locations I’ve ever visited. Clean, climate controlled storage with onsite management is an ideal option for storing all of your supplies or household possessions. If you’re packing up your house or business items and looking for a secure location to store them, here are the top reasons the new Barton would be a great option for you.
So you’ve planned a trip to Central Florida and LEGOLAND made the list. That’s great! If you’re staying in Orlando and planned a day trip to Winter Haven to visit the famous park, no problem. Just walk to the lobby of your hotel and there should be a bazillion brochures for touristy things to do.
However, if you stayed in or around Winter Haven during your visit, the choices aren’t so obvious. You could drive to Orlando every day to find something to do but a much more fun and relaxing option is to visit some of our local favorites. There are many things to do in the area and once you leave the park, you’ll still see more locals than you will tourists, which can be refreshing if you just came from Orlando.
Here are the 13 best things to do when you visit LEGOLAND with your family:
If you’re looking for something to do with the family and can’t quite find what you are looking for in Winter Haven, consider visiting 2 Infinity Extreme Air Sports in Lakeland. I’ve been to a few of these indoor trampoline places and this one wins hands down so I thought I’d write a little review. Without mentioning names of other similar companies, my first experience was during a birthday party at a chain brand in Orlando. It was extremely dirty and not well managed. Local kids who were obviously “regulars” were hitting other kids in the face with dodge balls and trying to start fights. The high school age workers on duty seemed to be friends with them and if you complained they didn’t do much of anything.
FIREHOUSE SUBS – WINTER HAVEN
(1107 3rd Street SW)
Every Wednesday night we drop off our children at the church for a children’s program. During that time my wife and I get an opportunity to have a Winter Haven “date night”. Hence the title Wednesday Night Reviews. I will preface this by saying we are not always in the mood nor do we always have the time to go to a nice meal. We’ve never had taco bell but I’m not ruling it out.
This Wednesday we decided to try Firehouse Subs. If you’ve never been there and you like Sandwiches, give them a try. They have a really cool theme focused around Firemen which can be expected because the company was founded by entrepreneurial firemen. They also have a pretty good selection on their menu. The Winter Haven Firehouse Subs is located in the plaza almost right across from Wawa, near the AT&T store.
