I look forward to Sunday mornings getting up having a cup of coffee and listening to the radio while reading the Sunday paper. I listen to 97 Country, a very popular local radio station here in Lakeland FL and throughout Central Florida. Sunday mornings segments are always filled with local happenings throughout Lakeland FL and the surrounding cities of Polk County. Just about on any given Sunday morning, the talk show host asked his guests who have moved to Lakeland recently or years ago, how they came to Lakeland FL. The latest guest replied by saying that a police officer from another town told her that Lakeland FL would be his recommendation to raise children because it is a family oriented city.
Time and time again, this conversation comes up about Lakeland FL and that it is a great place to live and what a great place to raise children. Lakeland is not a boring city, there is always things to do around Lakeland throughout the year, from First Fridays to the many festivals held downtown Lakeland and throughout the city of Lakeland all year around.
