What Bert Has To Say About Lakeland-Winter Haven Metro Area

Lakeland historically has been a major agricultural center with citrus growing, processing, and distribution, and a large phosphate mining industry mainly to the west. Winter Haven is a rapidly growing resort area to the east, and both places, taking advantage of a strategic location between major Florida centers of Tampa Bay and Orlando and relatively low housing costs, are becoming retirement and family living destinations.
