Winter Haven: Water Sports Capital of the World

Florida is now known for its tourism and attractions, but in 1936 there was only one commercial theme park in the state, Cypress Gardens. This Winter Haven gem began as a botanical garden and was the setting of many classic films. It boasted a bevy of Southern Belles and perhaps most notably, hosted its first water skiing show in 1943. The rest is history, and has made the way for many water sports enthusiasts.

The Cypress Gardens Water Ski show would run for 66 years, while breaking over 50 World Records. These skiers were a cross between athletes and entertainers and first started as entertainment for returning soldiers.  The incredible performers would execute jumps, form pyramids and ski barefoot. Blog Cabin 2014 pays homage to this piece of the past in a few different ways. For example, this vintage water ski hangs proudly in the living room.

Blog Cabin: Let the Games Begin!

Blog Cabin Laurie March 2014

Okay, I’ll be honest, I have a bit of a friendly, competitive streak. I love to play games with my family and friends and when I do, I play to win. If I were to play a round of bocce ball at the Blog Cabin’s amazing court, however, I might be in trouble. I don’t know how I could focus while taking in that view, but I’m always up for a challenge.
