About Lakeland and Polk County
Centrally located between Tampa and Orlando, Lakeland and Polk County offer residents and visitors a wide variety of sports, entertainment, cultural and educational opportunities. Lakeland is the heart of Polk County and it is Lakeland’s charm that creates a beautiful blend of a small town feel with the convenience and amenities of much larger cities.
Lakeland has received the distinction of being on Money Magazine’s “Best Place to Live in America” list. In addition, Lakeland is home to Publix Supermarkets, Florida Southern College which host the largest one-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and has been the winter host home to the Detroit Tigers for over 65 years.
While Lakeland is Polk County’s largest city, the rest of Polk County is not without its share of beauty and charm. Winter Haven is home to Cypress Gardens, Florida’s Oldest Theme Park, Lake Wales has the pristine gardens at Bok Tower and Bartow’s classic homes on grandfather oak laden streets offer some of nature’s best scenery.
