Imagine your dream life in Lakeland. Maybe you’re thinking of better weather, easier transit, and freebies from your favorite local spots — but it can’t be that easy, right? We make the hypothetical rules here, and you can only pick two.

We took to Instagram to ask our followers to choose from these five dream scenarios:

  1. Unlimited local coffee
  2. Guaranteed parking at Lake Hollingsworth
  3. No traffic on I-4
  4. Farmers market shopping spree every Saturday
  5. No humidity ever again

Not surprisingly, the biggest winner was a traffic-free interstate, but we want to hear from our readers, too. Cast your vote for the top two options you’d pick.
