Take a [visual] world tour 🌎
On record, the quickest trip around the world (on a commercial flight) was completed in 52 hours + 34 minutes. Here in Lakeland, we can make that journey right in our own backyard.
It’s no secret that Lakeland is an actual mecca for artists. 🎨 Corner-to-corner, you can find eye-widening sculptures, statues + murals alike (paired with a low cost-of-living 👌). But did you also know that many of our city’s walls are rich with history and community ties all around the world?
Today, we’re talking murals.
So grab your suitcase + passport (kidding, really you just need some good sunscreen + walking shoes), and prepare for an around-the-world journey all in one day.
Lakeland Postcard 📍 at 950 E. Main St.
Want to show off your hometown pride? Send some love from Lakeland in front of this postcard inspired mural.
Snap a pic at Dixieland’s Angel Selfie Wall + find yourself in good company with Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel angels in Vatican City. Created to give you your most angelic-version yet, (Snapchat filters need not apply) this wall may be a contender for the most Instagrammed locations in the city.
Down on your luck? 🍀 Stop into one of Lakeland’s favorite pubs for a pint. 🍻 The mural map of Ireland will make you wish you were Irish too.
At the end of the day, our girl Dorothy had it right: there’s really no place like home. 👠👠 Lakeland is featured in all her majestic glory outside the walls of Palace Pizza.
