Explore Lake City

Tucked into the junction of two major highways in North Florida — I-75 and I-10 — Lake City is a breeze to get to from any direction. Plus, we’re within easy reach of several large cities, so we can either be your primary destination or a fun change-of-pace side trip.

Weather

Even though it’s on the Georgia line, Lake City, Florida’s Springlands is still in the Sunshine State, averaging 222 bright and sunny days a year. (Compare that to Salt Lake City’s 125.) We have more of a change-of-season than most Florida destinations, which means the winter can get a little brisk (although the average high in January, our coldest month, is 64 degrees). Summer temperatures usually reach the low 90s – the perfect weather for diving into our 72-degree springs!
