Main Street Winter Haven

Facade Grant Program


Winter Haven, the self-proclaimed “Chain of Lakes City,”  is nestled among 31 fresh water lakes, 14 of which are uniquely connected by a series of canals.  Apart from its reputation as a city of lakes, Winter Haven is transforming itself into a Premier City where a high quality of life is important to everyone. 


A vital part of being a Premier City is a strong and vibrant downtown which, in Winter Haven, is once again the heart of commercial and public activity.  Over the past 15 years downtown Winter Haven has been transformed into a healthy business district.  That transformation has been guided, in large part, by Main Street Winter Haven., Inc.   A not for profit 501(c)(3) organization, Main Street Winter Haven has partnered with the City of Winter Haven in revitalizing the downtown by creating an environment for private investment that has generated a nucleus of specialty shops and commercial businesses.

For more details about downtown’s unique businesses, retail stores, restaurants, and special events visit our Downtown Events page.
