Welcome to Lakeland Mom!
We are your one-stop resource for information on fun kids activities, family-friendly events, local deals, and parenting resources in the Lakeland area. Our mission is to save parents and caregivers time by putting all the information you’re searching for in one place. While the name is Lakeland Mom (because it’s written by a Lakeland Mom AND is easy to remember) we also welcome dads, grandparents, babysitters, aunts & uncles, and anyone else looking for kids activities, family-friendly events, or parenting resources. We also welcome readers from Bartow, Winter Haven, Auburndale, Mulberry, Lake Wales, and anywhere else in or near Polk County. We cover events and activities in all of these communities.

We love to connect people with the resources they need. We love to share great deals. We love to see people enjoying fun community events with their families. Our goal is to create a space that parents and caregivers find useful and visit often.
