Dixieland Historic District and “Last Friday”

The Dixieland Historic District of Lakeland has many interesting restaurants and shops to explore. Dixieland is a short drive from our Woodlake neighborhood and offers community events throughout the year including “Last Friday” on the last Friday of each month from 6-9pm, where area shops stay open a little later. Dixieland is known for its unique mix of architecture, both historic and art deco. This interesting little spot of town definitely adds value and culture to our community.
