Lake Wales is located in Polk County in Central Florida, west of Lake Kissimmee and east of Tampa. The Lake Wales Chamber of Commerce is proud that Lake Wales was voted "the friendliest small town in Florida", and is a recipient of Florida Monthly Magazine's "Best of the Best Awards". The City of Lake Wales is 1.74 square miles in size with an estimated 16,000 residents, and is established along the state's geographical ridge, a ridge that boasts the highest elevation in the peninsula portion of the state, being 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 53.81 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. Enjoy an early morning walk on the bike/hike path around Lake Wales, visit the lush gardens surrounding the world renowned Bok Tower bell tower, enjoy an outstanding play, or meander through a lovingly preserved downtown district. Within a 30-mile radius is an engaging mixture of outdoor recreation, cultural activities, shopping, a variety of restaurants, churches and medical facilities. You can also be at the Atlantic ocean or Gulf beaches and the airport in less than 1 hour! No matter how you define the good life there is something to fit your lifestyle! Lake Wales, Florida, has a very reasonable cost-of-living index... one of the lowest tax bases in the country. Our location in Polk County is more protected from severe tropical storms due to our Central inland location.
Historic Bok Sanctuary in Lake Wales recently celebrated its 75th Anniversary. A gift to the people of America by Edward Bok, the sanctuary’s majestic carillon tower stands on one of Florida's highest points, 295-foot Iron Mountain. Every half-hour, music rings out from the tower, which is constructed of pink and gray Georgia marble and coquina stone from St. Augustine. The 57 bronze bells it houses range in weight from 17 pounds to nearly 12 tons. The tower is surrounded by 157 acres of splendid gardens. Bok Tower, open daily proudly provides daily recitals at 3 p.m. and occasional evening concerts.
