Haines City, Florida was settled back in the 1800s when South Florida Railroad came through the area.
Haines City is a beautiful city with breathtaking scenery only matched by its amazing weather. What more could you want? Oh, yea, that's right, it's only a stones throw away from...Disney World!!!
Moving to Haines City
Don't let the glitz and glam of Walt Disney World fool you; these homes were built right. Many were built in the 1920s, in fact, and they're nice and sturdy.
To get in early enough, just make sure you give yourself at least a solid 30-45 days of looking, and be sure to bring the essentials (credit report, first and month's rent ready, references, etc.).
Alta Vista: Looking for a more established neighborhood that you'll truly enjoy taking a stroll through? Best of all, most one and two-bedroom apartments are located near the south end of Lake Eva, so you'll have a beautiful view.
Lake Henry Hills: Want to enjoy the lake, but not Lake Eva? Have we got options for you! Lake Henry Hills is another fairly large neighborhood in town with plenty of homes for rent right on the edge of, you guessed it, Lake Henry!
Living in Haines City
Did we already mention Walt Disney World? What more could you want! Ok, ok, there's more, don't worry. For example, MGM Studios, and Six Flags is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
If theme parks aren't your thing, Downtown Haines City is full of buildings listed on the National Historic Register. The Haines City Community Theater and Historical Society are currently housed in a restored building that once served as a school for over 50 years. When you have friends in town, and they'll definitely want to visit, make sure to take some of Haines City, back for friends and family in the form of citrus candy and juices from the Orange Ring or Webb's Candies.
Golfers will adore the many golf courses, both public and private, to choose from. The Diamond Back Golf Club, Southern Dunes Golf Club and Grenelefe Golf Club offer spectacular 18-hole courses.
