Lame ass town in Central Florida east of the Tampa Bay area. The epitome of wanksterism, every black kid here seems to think they're a blood or crip. Some might even threaten you with their AK's and choppers that dont even exist!
"Im from Bartow. Watch me put a red flag on the left side like a retard."
A "city" in the middle of Florida. It is in Polk County, in between Lakeland, Mulberry, and Winterhaven. It is also in between Orlando and Tampa. It is the road to everywhere and also the road to nowhere.
"So you live in Lakeland?" -Dude from Lakeland
"No. I'm from Bartow." - Bartow resident
"I'm sorry." -Dude from Lakeland
"You should be. You live in Polk County." -Bartow resident
