Its a pretty calm and safe town but there is literally nothing to do. The mall is very small and limited, activities include bowling, movies or walking the lame mall. Older folks love the city but for kids and the youth its awful. Most people go out to the two other close bigger cities around to try and do other things.

Lakeland isn't that terrible, it's just not a suitable place for me
I wouldn't live in this exact area again but maybe.
