Enjoying a visit to Lakeland, FL


My parents moved to FL when they retired, then they chose a spot in Lakeland which is near enough to Tampa and Orlando to enjoy the amenities however far enough away to avoid the traffic, however when I visited last Christmas, I totally fell in cherish with the area.

  • The afternoontime temperatures were in the mid seventies with brilliant sun and purple skies… Overnight, the temperature only dropped into the fifties; My nice friend and I were able to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air… I know that the conditions get especially hot and humid in the summer, requiring the central air conditioner to run just about non stop, and however, the winters are just beautiful.

During my stay, my parents took me to the Circle B Bar Reserve, which is located just southeast of Lakeland. The preserve occupies more than twelve hundred acres of land, and it’s full of wildlife. My nice friend and I took the Shady Oak Trail to Alligator Alley and also explored the Heron Hideout trail, which covered approximately four miles of walking. My nice friend and I spotted Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, White Ibis and even a Bald Eagle. There is an area where the trail winds between the lake on one side and a March on the other and becomes quite tight. This section is known as Alligator Alley and is where the alligators cross the path. There were quite a few of them, and my nice friend and I had to wait almost fifteen minutes for a clear trail. It was an especially superb afternoon. I was equally as entertained by simply hanging out at my mom and dad’s house. They have a legitimately gorgeous view of the lake. I was able to take their kayak out in the evenings.
