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.
