Lakeland, FL is a bustling town that is growing every day! This is my hometown, and I can attest Lakeland is a far cry from what she used to be 30 years ago. Back in the day, we had the movies, bowling, Family Fun Center, Davie’s Ice Cream, and that was about it. We even called our town, “Lameland” because there was never anything to do! You had to travel to Tampa or Orlando for anything exciting.
