City of Charm
From fishing and boating to golfing, hiking or biking, this City of Charm is nothing short of scenic views and a relaxing getaway. Avon Park is sprinkled with famed artwork throughout popular attractions including the Peter Powell Roberts Museum, The Artist’s Group (TAG) Art Studio and Gallery, and The Wildflower Wayside Shrine Trail.
Venture over to the Alan Jay Wildstein Center at South Florida State College to get your performing arts fix with over 30 shows featured each year. With past performances by Jay Leno, Johnny Mathis, Kenny Rogers, Vienna Boys Choir and Broadway tours, this theater has hosted the faces of big names since 1984.
Or get ready to take it back 25 million years ago with a trip to the Museum of Florida Art and Culture (MOFAC) and learn the story of the first people who made landfall in 12,000 B.C., along with the tribes that followed, through the artistic pieces of archaeological treasures, paintings, ceramics, etchings and quilts.
And while you’re here, don’t forget to experience an authentic taste of Old Florida through Avon Park’s local eats, whether it be the comfort of a cold beer and pub grub at the Wild Turkey Tavern or a seasoned steak with a side of freshly steamed veggies at Eighteen East Restaurant and Bar. Or stop by Maxwell Groves for the sweet taste of the area’s vibrant citrus industry.
From its mile-long mall highlighting the downtown and the historic Hotel Jacaranda, to the business and activity along US 27, Avon Park people always take the time to welcome visitors and to lend a helping hand.
