Over the past seven years, a lot has changed in Lakeland and also within the pages of this magazine. We have had the privilege of telling the stories that make up our growing city, and the best part of it all – it only gets better with time.


Building Place of Pride

Before the first issue of The Lakelander ever hit stands, rarely did we come across the term “Lakelander.” Since that inaugural issue seven years ago, “Lakelander” has become present in our local vernacular, instilling pride in our local identity.

Celebrating the Makers, Doers and Givers

We’ve always been about celebrating the great people that make up our city and what specifically they’re doing to give back to it. Our annual Lakelander Made issue continues to highlight the influence of many local businesses while our first-ever Philanthropy issue inspired us by the giving spirit of our city.

Daily Connection; True Influence

The launch of our digital content paved a new way for us to have a more consistent presence in Lakeland. Over the past year, we’ve been able to utilize our weekly newsletters to provide timely news, and our City Guide supports our city by providing readily-available recommendations from a trusted brand.
