The area and getting around

Lakeland, a truly year round destination

With Lakeland Linder International Airport just five miles away and excellent road links, getting to Lakeland is a breeze. And, it's so much more peaceful than Florida's coastal resorts. In fact, it's so peaceful, swans and pelicans love it. They breed on Lake Morton every spring. Visit in spring as well to catch the atmosphere of a baseball game at Joker Merchant Stadium while culture vultures can catch a show at Polk Theater. With its Venetian piazza, painted ceilings, and elegant balconies, it's a dream destination in itself.

Plenty to see and do in Lakeland

Be blown away by Lakeland City's colorful murals, open-air art installations, and dancing water fountains, and then blow away the cobwebs at the Circle B Bar Reserve. As well as being a huge cattle ranch, Circle B Bar is also a popular spot for hiking and cycling. You may get a tantalizing glimpse of alligators, pelicans, and magnificent blue herons. Entertain the kids for a few hours at the Explorations V Children's Museum. Using sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell to explore, they'll soak up knowledge without even realizing it.

Travelers and activities

Lakeland for nature lovers

The Circle B Bar isn't the only place to dive into nature. Hike or cycle the Lake-to-Lake Trail from Lake Parker to Lake Morton looking out for plovers and spoonbills as you go. Swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake Morton while your kids let off steam on the long sandy beach. If you feel energetic, book a fishing trip or have a go at water skiing.

A history buff's delight

Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most iconic architects in history. Feast your eyes on his work at Florida Southern College, where he had a real vision for the design of the campus. Highlights of a visit include the Usonian Faculty House and the splendid Water Dome. Explore more architecture, including the quirky Old Coca-Cola building, in the Munn Park Historic District. If you prefer the wonder of flight to buildings, then everything aviation related can be see at Fantasy of Flight, home to the world's largest collection of private aircraft! You may even be lucky enough to catch an aerial display.

While swans have been a feature of Lakeland for nearly a century, they'd nearly disappeared in the 1950s. Most of today's swans are descended from a pair donated by Queen Elizabeth II.

Top 5 travel tips for Lakeland

1. Feed the animals at Safari Wilderness

Prepare to be amazed by the animals and habitats at Safari Wilderness. Take a jeep ride through rugged terrain to view zebra, Greater Kudu, and Watusi Cattle before stopping to feed water buffalo, ostriches, and cute ring-tailed lemurs. Feeling more adventurous? Then ditch the jeep and view the park by camelback.

2. Smell the flowers at Hollis Garden

Let the sights, scents, and serenity of Hollis Garden wash away your stress. Sitting on the banks of Lake Mirror, this tranquil spot features thousands of well-labeled flowers as well as vegetable gardens, picturesque fountains, and a fascinating butterfly trail. You can even follow a promenade all around the lake.

3. Visit an inspirational art gallery

Polk Museum of Art is a cozy but packed full of works from pre-Colombian times. There are also rotating exhibitions that have recently featured works by Toulouse-Lautrec and Pablo Picasso. Sculptures are dotted around its beautiful gardens.

4. Let kids explore at Common Ground Park

The play zones at this cutting-edge park take children on an adventure through mountains, canyons, valleys, and meadows. Even the flower gardens are interactive. Everything is designed to be educational as well as great fun.

5. Look to the skies at SURF 'n' SUN

While Fantasy of Flight is worth a visit at any time of the year, try and get there in April for the annual SURF 'n' SUN aviation extravaganza. Hundreds of pilots fly in to show off their vintage, home-built, sport, and jet planes to the huge crowds. A Family Fun Zone, military displays, and nighttime airshows all add to the excitement.
