paintedwallclearWelcome to Haines City and the "Heart of Florida." Set on a rolling expanse of hills in Polk County, Haines City offers the comfort and convenience of modern life without the hustle and hassle of a big city. It is truly a "city growing for tomorrow."  Located at the northern portion of the Lake Wales Ridge, Haines City is the commercial center of growing northeast Polk County.  Situated along the busy US 27 corridor, at the intersection of US 17 & 92, 10 miles south of Interstate 4, it's a 30 minute drive to Orlando, about an hour from Tampa, and both of Florida's seashores are within a 90-minute drive.

Haines City, with an approximate population of 13,800, has resisted becoming over-crowded. Instead this close-knit, friendly community has maintained its high quality of life, favorable working conditions, rural ambiance, and almost unlimited outdoor recreation..

Golfers will find eight courses to whet their appetites and many more in surrounding areas. In addition, a wide variety of employment, cultural and educational opportunities are available.

Its natural beauty remains largely untouched and yet it is within an arm's reach of two major metropolitan areas. It is a great place for your family and for your business. Residents here say that, as a place in which to enjoy life and prosper, Haines City has no equal.

At least sixteen lakes in the greater Haines City area provide scenic views,  excellent freshwater fishing, water sports, and home sites. Recreational facilities, such as manicured golf courses, tennis courts, shuffleboard, public pools, and structured programs and activities, are abundant in and around the city.

Governed by a commission/manager form of government, Haines City provides a wide variety of recreational opportunities, including fresh-water beaches, and two city-operated swimming pools.

High school sports take the stage in early fall, when the Haines City High Hornets fields its highly popular football team, followed by both boys' and girls' basketball, and winding out the year with baseball and track. It's amateur gamemanship at its purest, and loyal fans follow them avidly. Colleges/universities with over 2000 students:

On the pro side, major league baseball spring training gets under way in late January at the Kansas City Royals complex, just eight miles north of Haines City at the intersection of Highway 27 and Interstate 4. The 8,000-seat state-of-the-art stadium is owned by Anheuser Busch, and is leased to the Royals.

Twelve miles from Haines City, pennant-winning Cleveland Indians train at Winter Haven, and twenty miles west, the Detroit Tigers play at Lakeland. Throughout the central Florida area, inter-league games are a daily event during March. In St. Petersburg, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays club is playing its third year of expansion baseball.

Pro sports fans may also take their choice of seasons and teams. In Orlando, The Magic delights their basketball fans; and likewise in Tampa, the Buccaneers are tantalizing their supporters. Also in Tampa, one may see championship horse jumping competitions, professional ice hockey by the Lightning, soccer by the Mutiny, and horse racing at Olsmar. Greyhounds chase the mechanical rabbits at Orlando and St. Petersburg. At nearby Auburndale, drivers grind the turf at the stock car race track.

City of Haines Cityclear

When the first settlers came to the Haines City area, they found it rich with wild game and fish. The pine forests provided industries producing lumber and turpentine. Others became farmers in the muck areas of the region, and early citrus growers began clearing the land for what was to become the heart of the present-day industry.



imageclearIn very recent years, the Economic Development Committee of the Chamber of Commerce has aggressively pursued light industry and commercial development with good success.  Long dependent upon citrus production as its principal industry, Haines City is becoming popular as a retirement center. New golf course communities and expanding shopping opportunities are speeding the growth of the area.

imageclear
Celebrating our national Independence Day has a high priority in the city's agenda, and the result is one of the county's largest day-long programs including country music groups, baby contests, pie and watermelon eating contests, arts, food and craft booths and culminates with Polk County's largest fireworks display
