Lake Placid Florida,
This beautiful town located in Highlands County Florida has a population of around 2,000 people. No this is not the town where the 1980 Winter Olympics took place but it is well known for the beautiful caladiums that are grown here and the town is also known for being called the Town of Murals.

Lake Placid is found in the lake-intensive center of the state and known as the Caladium Capital of the World, Lake Placid’s attractions include 27 freshwater lakes, Toby's Clown School and a small-town charm people love. The annual Caladium Festival is held the end of July, Henscratch Farms Vineyard & Winery hosts an annual Grape Stomp in August, and a Saturday Morning Market is held on the second Saturday of each month October through March. Enjoy the area's unique ecosystem at Archbold Biological Station, as well as a historically good time at the Depot Museum, home of the red caboose and local history artifacts displayed by the Lake Placid Historical Society. In 2012, Reader’s Digest named Lake Placid “America’s Most Interesting Town.”
