Lakeland is very spread out and doesn't feel very connected. It is a bigger town than the one I come from, and I do not prefer that. They do try to create a community feeling with nice parks and events, but I prefer living near the Atlantic Ocean.

Living in Florida there are no season changes, and everything is slow.
Life here is great, compared to where I am use to being at it really is an improvement on life.
