A "city" in between Tampa and Orlando intersected by I4 which lacks in any originality and consists of only chain resturants and stores such as McDonalds and Waffle House. This is where Publix originated and is it's only claim to fame. The swan is Lakeland's symbol, no matter where you are in Lakeland, you can see a swan wether it be a real one being slaughtered by one of the local hicks or a statue of one colored or dressed to fit its particular location. Kau Kau Koner is a racist bar which is the only one in the area where you aren't as likely to be stabbed as the other shitty bars in the area. The reason for this is because it is the only one that the students of Florida Southern College can go to and make it back to school after a long nights drink. The downtown area is not entirely bad as long as you stay away from places such as Memorial Blvd, where you will be stampeded by homeless people morning, noon and night.
Thursday Night: "What do you want to do tonight?"
"Get drunk and go to Kaus"
Friday Night: "What do you want to do tonight?"
"Get drunk and go to Kaus"
Saturday Night: "What do you want to do tonight?"
"Get drunk and go to Kaus"

P.S. Don't go to Lakeland... Ever

A place in Florida from which all evil in the Universe originates. It is the ominous spawning grounds of the deleterious Publix Corporation, hometown to murderer Ray Lewis, and the crappiest festival in the world, known as "Sun 'n' Fun."

Oh, and there's a lot of dumb emo kids around too.
Lakeland is the place where if you had a choice to live in Lakeland or North Dakota, you should pick North Dakota.

Synonymous with dead end. The most god awful part of the greater western hemisphere, with the worst taxi service.

A typical saturday night in Lakeland consists of a)Publix Supermarkets or b)getting shit faced in some backwoods barnhouse
If you really hate yourself, you gotta check out Lakeland!

A city in Central Florida that is located between Tampa and Orlando on the I-4 tech corridor. The city has recently transformed itself into a technology hub of the East Coast. Here, many start up tech companies have taken home and allowed the area to support higher educational facilities.

Having a variety college students, the Lakeland Metro area is home to 6 regional universities. These universities include the University of South Florida Polytechnic, Florida Southern, Southeastern University, Polk State College, and many more. As a result of this influx of college students, the town itself caters to a mix of young adults as well as families.

The nightlife is very diverse in Downtown Lakeland. On a standard night, the locals can sample Cuban, Irish, New Orleans, and sports bars. The hot dog stand is absolutely clutch in this town as it helps stop a hangover and serves any topping you want including chili and cheese.

Brewz Crewz is a must as the city closes down its streets to cars, so that hundreds of people can participate in drinking as many beers as possible in public. Lakeland is known also for closing off downtown streets at night for first friday.
Want to stop off in Lakeland and eat as many chili cheese dogs and pipos as possible?

A small citish area in the middle of Florida. It has a lot of lakes, but not the most in the county. it was discovered by a guy named Munn a long time ago. There is not a huge amount to do, except go to the AMC (which is only $5.50, not the movies) and do large amount of nothing.
I hope you aren't going to Lakeland, it sucks.
