Exploring Lakeland

Lakeland is a vibrant community conveniently located along I-4 between Tampa and Orlando. With a population just over 120,279, the city limits cover 75.16 square miles.  Lakeland has many lakes that are community focal points, providing scenic areas for recreation. In fact, much of Lakeland’s culture and iconic neighborhoods are built around the 38 named lakes found in the community.

Downtown Lakeland is a vital and enjoyable place for residents and visitors. It has been dubbed “Lakeland’s living room” and truly embodies the community spirit of Lakeland.  There are quaint shops, casual restaurants, pubs, craft breweries and fine-dining experiences to be found in and around the historic brick buildings that surround the historic Munn Park town square.

The City embraces its past and that is evident strolling the tree lined, brick streets in the historic neighborhoods found throughout Lakeland. The area is home to Southeastern UniversityFlorida Polytechnic UniversityPolk State College‘s Lakeland campus, and Florida Southern College, which hosts the largest on-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture.
