About the Community
Although the population continues to grow, Lakeland's cost of living and property taxes remain among the lowest in the state and NO STATE INCOME TAX!
Lakeland, FL is located just 45 minutes from two major airports- Tampa and Orlando International Airports. Our centralized location ensures a healthy environment where locally owned shops and restaurants thrive, as well as the largest manufacturers and nationally-recognized companies such as FedEx, Geico Insurance, Publix Supermarkets and Rooms-To-Go furniture.
With 500+ lakes and numerous parks, residents enjoy a variety of outdoor activities and access to major sports events and attractions - football, baseball, basketball and hockey! Our year-round moderate weather, 243 days of sunshine and some of the country's world-renowned attractions, Lakeland is a fun and fulfilling place to live. Residents not only appreciate local attractions such as Fantasy of Flight and the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In (2nd largest air show in the U.S.), but also what's available in nearby Tampa and Orlando- Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Orlando Magic, NFL's Tampa Bay Bucs, NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning, and MLB's Tampa Bay Rays. Lakeland is also the spring training home for the Detroit Tigers with Clinic physicians serving as the official medical provider for their Florida operation.
Lakeland harbors a medley of cultural treats such as the internationally renowned architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright on the campus of Florida Southern College and the acclaimed Imperial Symphony Orchestra. The community nurtures the creative instincts of our youth at the Harrison School for the Visual and Performing Arts, and a training complex that offers expert instruction in the fields of dance, theatre, art and music.
