YLakeland is a part of Catapult Lakeland, an initiative of the Lakeland Economic Development Council. YLakeland helps connect students and young professionals with the community and assets that make Lakeland unique. Sure we love a good chain restaurant, who doesn’t? But we live local and will keep you in the know on events, things to do, new businesses to call Lakeland home and much more. We strive to give you an insider’s perspective on the amazing things our community has to offer and the people that make living in Lakeland such a wonderful place to call home.
