Lake Wales Florida Travel Guide

Lake Wales is located in the very geographical center of Florida, west of Lake Kissimmee and east of Tampa. It was established back in 1917. Prior to that, it was considered almost uninhabitable. It was the arrival of the railroad in 1911 to Lake Wales that ended the town's isolation and inspired early settlement. The original Atlantic Coast Line depot was the first building in Lake Wales. Shortly after in 1913, a larger framed building replaced the original. The new depot was capable of accommodating both freight and passengers, which further helped the young town to grow.
