Waterskiing

Since the 1930s, Winter Haven has grown into a waterskiing mecca. Learn the sport, in all its pulsating variations, like barefoot skiing, at one of the local schools. Then try your luck out on Winter Haven’s famous Chain of Lakes, the series of lakes that extends across this stretch of Central Florida.
