Central Florida

If wide, open, space and a safe and family-friendly environment is a priority for a Florida stay then Central Florida offers the perfect haven.

Well set up to provide a socially distanced stay, the area has a vast array of natural terrain - there are 120 trails covering more than 375-miles for hiking, cycling and running and 554 lakes offering natural beauty, wildlife and sporting opportunities.

Polk County's attractions and accommodations have adapted with the times to ensure the utmost safety of guests. The area is furthermore home to 7,000 vacation homes and condos, the ideal accommodation option for those looking to have their own space and all within an easy drive to Florida's major Orlando theme parks.

Visit Central Florida, Polk County, is inviting agents to sign up to its newly launched Visit Central Florida Travel Specialist Academy. Once completed, agents will receive a Visit Central Florida Specialist Certificate, exclusive discounts and upgraded benefits within the destination.

Before starting, agents are invited to watch a virtual familiarisation video where Tourism Industry Sales Representative Joni Allen takes them on a 20-minute whistle stop tour of what’s known as “Florida’s Sweetest Spot”.

Home to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, the area offers many undiscovered attractions and experiences like the Westgate River Ranch Resort, the largest dude ranch east of the Mississippi. The ranch offers a host of accommodation options including luxe tepees as well as a Saturday night championship rodeo.

Agents will get to know Bok Tower Gardens, one of the oldest attractions in Florida, as well as unique experiences like U-pick citrus farms where visitors can join a tour and pick their own fruit.
