4 Family-Centered Attractions in the Lakeland Area


There are a lot of reasons to love Lakeland, but one of them is that Lakeland is a wonderful place for families. Between excellent schools (check out my recent posts about prominent public and private schools in the area), fun outdoor activities, and exciting places to make family memories, Lakeland has the gamet! Here are 4 family-centered attractions you can experience with the whole family.

Explorations V Children's Museum

Explorations V is not your average museum. With 3 floors of interactive learning exhibits, a variety of free programs, and party accommodations, this museum is never boring. Exhibits at the museum include “Our Town,” a group of interactive displays that help kids learn the basics of math, science, and art, and “Our World,” a model orange grove that takes kids on a journey around the world and teaches agriculture and Florida history. At Explorations V, there’s always something new to learn!


Looking for an excitement-packed family outing that your kids will never forget? Look no further. Lakeland’s newest escape room games, Escapology, has the adventure you’ve been waiting for. The games are great for kids 8 years or older and Escapology is conveniently located on Pine street in the heart of downtown Lakeland. The 4 themed games - Cuban Crisis, Antidote, Budapest Express, and Th3 Cod3 - are sure to ignite your imagination, challenge your mind, and make family memories!

Medieval Times Dinner Theatre

Medieval Times in Orlando is an exciting show that’s perfect for a family night out. Between armoured knights who joust and fence for supremacy, crowd participation in the knights’ competitions, beautiful horses who perform stunts, and a 4-course meal, you and the kids will be sure to enjoy every minute. Although it’s a little drive from Lakeland, Medieval times is still a great way to make memories and ignite your kids’ imaginations! 

Lakeland is a great place for families, and these four adventure-filled activities are just a few reasons why.
