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.

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.
