The Spirit of Lakeland

With a history dating back to Florida’s old pioneers in the 1870s, Lakeland was built around 38 lakes found in the area. This background is never far from your mind in Lakeland, as the heritage of the town is celebrated through a series of landmarks that bring the city together for a small-town feel. Residents pride themselves on a tradition of philanthropy and volunteerism, as well as making an effort to give every visitor a sense of community.

Historic Districts and Modern Activities

Within the city of Lakeland, there are seven distinct historic districts that surround 13 individual landmarks and over 1600 historical buildings. The streets in these areas are lined with trees and bricks for a nostalgic feel. These districts include Dixieland, Beacon Hill, East Lake Morton, South Lake Morton, and Biltmore-Cumberland.

The landmarks that surround these areas are more than history; they’re also parts of the local culture. Multiple schools are in this category, as well as the Polk Theatre and thriving agricultural districts. Lakeland also boasts the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work in the world, as well as a Safari Wilderness adventure and the Circle B Bar Reserve.

Land of Opportunity

Lakeland is not tied to a single industry- there is an opportunity for many lines of work. The most common jobs are sales and office worker roles, and the education level is 22% higher than the national average. There is also a thriving agricultural center where citrus is grown, processed, and distributed.

Along with the local job market, Lakeland is located near many larger cities and attractions. Theme parks and beaches are all a drive away.
