The City of Lake Wales –19 square miles in size with an estimated 14,000 residents– is established along the state’s geographical ridge, a ridge that boasts the highest elevation in the peninsula portion of the state, 298 feet. This advantageous location gives Lake Wales a climate rich in Florida sunshine, but without the humidity of the coastal area. Daytime temperatures rarely exceed the mid-90’s during the summer and seldom fall below the 60’s in winter. Yearly rainfall averages 48 inches, occurring mostly in late spring and summer. This local atmosphere is further enhanced by rolling hills, a carpet of lush green citrus trees and the inviting waters of numerous lakes which offer some of the best fishing in the country.
Voted “the friendliest small town in Florida”, its unique history and architecture, diverse accommodations,environmental, cultural and recreational attractions, charming shops and restaurants, make the Lake Wales area a great place to live. The character of its residents – the true jewels in the Lake Wales crown – also encourages visitors to take time out from the ordinary, to discover a better way of life –– and a great place to play. Lake Wales real estate offers many choices including beautiful lakefront homes, fishing cottages, horse properties and much more.
