Bartow is just seven miles south of the Polk Parkway, with its direct connection to Interstate 4. State Road 60, Florida’s Coast to Coast Highway, travels directly through Bartow connecting Florida’s Gulf and Atlantic coasts. The transportation system provides a conduit to all markets in the state and beyond. The availability of land continues to drive residential,
commercial and industrial development. In addition, Polk County has more rail than any other location in Florida.
Bartow is located within one of the highest growth metro markets in the southeast United States, and one of the most attractive areas in which to operate a business. With an available labor force backed by numerous training programs, the area provides the precision, technical and service skills a company may require.
Our strategic location positions you at the center of the state and at the mouth of the global marketplace with more rail miles than any other community in Florida, and access to four major roadways and four general aviation airports, including Bartow Executive Airport and Industrial Park. Tampa and Orlando’s international airports are within an hour’s drive. Polk County truly is one of the most connected locations in the Southeast.
When it comes to lifestyle, Bartow is a short drive to some of the most popular attractions and resorts in the world. If you like the beach, you have your choice of the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean, just a short drive away. Art, entertainment and cultural opportunities are just about limitless. Combine that with great weather and a low cost of living, and you’ve got one of the best places to live, work and play. Location, location, location.
