Why Should I Move to Lakeland?

Why Lakeland - Homes for Heroes Florida - Lakeland - Winter Haven - Bartow - Greater Polk County

There are many reasons to consider buying a home in Lakeland and throughout Polk County.

1. Lakeland is close to everything.

Tampa is just a short trip to the West and Orlando a short trip to the East. If you want to get away to the parks in Orlando or the night life in Tampa, it is an easy trip.

2. Wonderful Schools throughout the city.

From the strong presence of schools like McKeel Academy, to the character-building schools such as Lakeland Christian Academy, to the schools made to serve your child artist such as Harrison School for the Arts, Lakeland provides education. And for college students interested in STEAM, the Florida Poly is here, along with students interested in aeronautical engineerings.

3. Plenty of entertainment.

Right here locally there are many options. Have a fine-dining experience at 1961, an elegant restaurant from Chef Marco. Enjoy our wildly popular holiday events such as the Lakeland Junior League Christmas Parade or July 4th Fireworks Display Red-White-Ka-Boom. At the same time we are not too far to places that people travel from all over the world to see like Disney Parks, Sea World, Busch Gardens and Legoland.

4. Growing Job Industry

Major manufacturing and warehouse jobs are opening up. Amazon Distribution Centers, Public Corporate, FedEx corporate and distribution centers, and much more.
