Lakeland is situated about half way between Tampa and Orlando in the central section of Florida. It has a population of nearly 90,000 people. Lakeland's center is Lake Mirror which is surrounded by the downtown area as well as parks. Lake Palmer and Lake Hancock make the area very water centric. While most of Lakeland's central area is very walkable, you might want to consider owning a car for getting around this beautiful area. There's plenty to do in the area once you get settled into your Lakeland apartment.
Lakeland is famous for a couple of things, the primary of which is the number of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings on the campus of Florida Southern College. There are nine of his buildings and he left an indelible print on the city during his twenty years of work here. There are any number of old and historical districts that are fun to walk around in, and the Polk Museum for art and the Polk Theatre are both nice venues for the culturally inclined. You'll find plenty of parks and recreational venues both in town and at the lakes.
Once settled in your Lakeland apartment, the one restaurant you must visit if you haven't already is Mister Fish. They make a fish sandwich that is renown. Harry's Seafood Bar is a much more traditional restaurant with fantastically fresh shrimp and a nice atmosphere. Garl's is where you taste test the local barbeque and there are people who swear it's some of the best anywhere in Florida. You'll find Cuban, Thai, Japanese and other ethnic cuisines easily too. For a big night out, the historic Terrace Hotel is one of the prettiest places in town, and the food is excellent!
Shoot Some Pool
Small neighborhood bars and pubs are probably the most popular places at night, so once you get all settled in your Lakeland apartment, go in search of one close to home.If you want to check out some other areas, try Miller's Ale House and Molly McHoughs, both are indicative of the local pub scene. Wally's and Sharky's are both popular bar/pool halls. There are a few places around town that have live music from time to time, but you'll probably want to drive over to Orlando for a substantial night out.
