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.

Angel Selfie Wall |📍alley west of FL Ave. | Behind Born & Bread Bakehouse + Patriot Coffee | Aaron M Corbitt

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.

Egyptian Mural with Pyramids And The Sphinx |📍Hookah Palace | 122 S. Kentucky Ave. |  Demolli Art Studio

Don’t be in denial when you could be on The Nile. 🐫 Get lost in the rich colors and history of the egyptian scene that takes place inside of Lakeland’s first ever hookah bar.

L’Hermione |📍wall behind the Mahoney Group near Polk Pkwy. | 3825 Florida Ave. S. #5 | Tim Haas

Oui’(we) absolutely love this mural of the French frigate, L’Hermione. The Mahoney Group added it to their building to represent ties to the French-American Business Council of West Florida. 🗽

Molly McHugh’s Ireland |📍Molly McHugh’s | 111 S. Kentucky Ave. | Harmony Miller

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.

Mural of Lake Mirror |📍Palace Pizza | Demolli Art Studio

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.

 

But that’s not all folks. Below are several more murals found in our area.
