Davenport, Florida Offers Small Town Charm

With fewer than 2000 residents as of the last census, Davenport offers visitors something that few places in America can these days: a welcome dose of small town hospitality. Davenport is located in Polk County, in an area of gently sloped hills scattered amid the Atlantic coastal plain. The climate is classified as subtropical, which means that temperatures are warm 12 months a year. The summer is the warmest season, but average temperatures hover in the mid to upper 80s, making Davenport pleasantly warm but not hot. Winters here provide a respite from colder climates further north.

Davenport offers simple amenities such as baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, a swimming pool, and two city parks, both of which have playground equipment suitable for young children. Tourists can enjoy a simple stroll around the downtown area or sit on the porch of their Davenport vacation homes to enjoy the sight of a wonderful Florida sunset.

Davenport's main attraction, however, may be its location near major metropolitan areas with water parks and amusement parks. It is not a long drive to reach Orlando, the entertainment center of Florida and the eastern United States. Slightly longer drives can take tourists to both coasts of Florida. However, Davenport is the location where an interesting piece of American history took place; this was where the US military negotiated with the Seminole Nation back in 1839, when early settlement of the area began.

Davenport the place to be on holiday in Florida

Posted by Phil Howard on Friday, February 09, 2007
Davenport is one of the most popular places to stay on vacation in Florida. As areas around Disney have no been developed to the maximum, Davenport offers a massive amount of undeveloped land for investors. So what have they done so far? Built 7 brand new communities in the last 5 years, constructed three magnificent 18 hole golf courses, a mini shopping mall, redeveloped all the major routes through to highways 192 and 27 for ease of access to all major attractions. 2007 will see the construction of a brand new shopping mall on highway 54. And the best of it is all this is within 10 minutes of all communities in Davenport. The final jewel in the crown is that Davenport remains unspoilt set in tranquil, picturesque surroundings so at the end of a long day at the theme parks you will be able to relax in rural surroundings and ease the nights away. Now ask yourself, is that the perfect place to rent a beautiful holiday villa whilst on holiday in Florida? I bet I know your answer.
