Welcome Center's 12 Days of Christmas

DAVENPORT — Are you ready to start getting into the holiday season? One of Central Florida’s tourism centers is eager to help spread some holiday cheer.

Central Florida’s Welcome Center in Davenport is giving away a free gift every day between Dec. 1 and Dec. 12. The gifts will be available to the first 50 guests who mention the giveaway to a front desk staff member.

“The free gift will vary each day and will include items from local businesses,” noted Kelly Rote, Communications Specialist for Visit Central Florida, in a news release about this upcoming holiday event. Guests must be age 18 and over to receive a gift.

What is the Central Florida Welcome Center?

Visit Central Florida was created to welcome visitors to Polk County, just south of Orlando and the major theme parks, and with its own host of popular attractions that include:

And many others. In fact, Visit Central Florida calls Polk County “Florida’s Sweetest Spot for epic outdoor adventures, incredible eats and Sunshine State attractions! Here, you can experience the best that Lakeland and Winter Haven have to offer while escaping the crowds found in larger cities. From wide open spaces to exhilarating thrill rides at nearby theme parks, we have it all. Let us help you plan a Central Florida vacation.”

This Christmas season, the Welcome Center’s souvenir gift shop is also stocking up on unique holiday gifts, while offering vacation-planning ideas and selling discounted tickets for a lot of the popular Central Florida attractions, including those in both Polk County and the Orlando area. For more information, call 863-420-2586.

Central Florida’s Welcome Center  is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week (excluding major holidays), and located at 101 Adventure Court in Davenport on U.S. 27, a half-mile south of Exit 55 off Interstate 4.
