Lake Placid, Florida is a small community set on the banks of Lake June in Winter in Central Florida. The town is nicknamed as the “Town of Murals” and the “Caladium Capital of the World” for the number of murals and caladium bulbs in the town.
The biggest attraction in Lake Placid is the Toby the Clown Foundation. Toby the Clown Foundation is a clown school known throughout the country and it has been training the top entertainers in their field since 1993. Check out the museum inside, the only clown museum in the USA. Take a walking tour of the town to check out over 50 murals brightening up the streets. If you’re an outdoors type, Lake Placid (and around) is home to nearly 30 lakes and ponds. Head out for a picnic, a hike, a dip or a fishing trip.
Lake Placid is best for a vacation from October to April to get warm weather, but not the sweltering hot weather of the summer.
Lake Placid is arguably one of Florida’s prettiest small towns, thanks largely to the nearly 50 brightly-colored murals that make downtown truly unique. The town is also known as Caladium Capital of the World, and one of its biggest draws is in the immediate area where there are over 27 freshwater lakes, offering a huge range of recreational activities. Another unique feature of Lake Placid is Toby’s Clown School, which is also home to a small museum. If you have ever wondered where people go to learn how to entertain, here's your answer!
To get out and about, explore the interesting ecosystem of Archbold Biological Station, and really get to know the nature of the area.
