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.
