Lake Placid Florida has so much to offer; it's no wonder more and more people are calling it home!  Just ask Reader's Digest who voted Lake Placid Florida America's Most Interesting Town!!
Known as the Caladium Capital of the World, Lake Placid has 27 freshwater lakes, beautiful Murals around town depicting our history, Toby's Clown School and the historical Happiness Tower which rises 270 feet above ground. 
(Sorry, Tower tours are not available at this time)
There is always something to see or do in Lake Placid, special events, fishing tournaments & even street parties!  Annually, we have our Country Fair and Caladium Festivals. 
Enjoy a historically good time at the Depot Museum which is the home of the red caboose and local history artifacts displayed by the Lake Placid Historical Society.

This is an accomplishment that no other softball team in Lake Placid or Highlands County has ever achieved.  To see a group of girls so excited is truly inspirational.
