  • This film provides a look at Polk County, showing citrus groves and processing, Bok Tower, the Great Masterpiece and Cypress Gardens. Next, the tourist "family" the film is following visits a phosphate mine and they back their convertible into a dragline bucket to convey the size. Viewers see mining underway and the family hunts fossils in debris piles. An "unusual scenic attraction" is Sand Mountain, a phosphate debris pile. Next is a cattle farm, Florida Southern College, and its Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. Recreation includes skiing, boating and fishing. Produced by Sanborn Film Productions; sponsored by Polk County Chamber of Commerce.
