Lakeland is a popular name and there is a city named Lakeland in several states. This Lakeland is located in Florida around half way between Orlando Florida and Tampa Florida. Most of the city is found south of I-4 which is the interstate road most locals travel when commuting.
Lakeland was founded over 100 years ago when a gentleman settled on the southern shoreline of Lake Hollingsworth. After just a short time he discovered that the winds in the location he had chosen were often enough to blow the front door of his shack open so he then moved. Lake Hollingsworth is still a popular place to live around and many of the cities most expensive homes are located in that vicinity. The doors on today's homes are much more secure.
