The Lakelander is a city-based culture and lifestyle magazine. We exist to reflect our city and its diversity, to incite pride of place, and to reveal lesser-known facets of our community. We connect people, sources, and ideas. We’re aspirational yet approachable, sophisticated but homegrown. We dig deeper and aren’t afraid of a little grit.
We at The Lakelander are keenly interested in real people and their stories. We wholeheartedly believe Lakeland is brimming with characters and their tales of where they came from, how they got here, and why they chose this particular town in central Florida to call home. Those are the stories we’re after.
