Activities and Attractions

In Lake City, Florida’s Springlands, our springs, lakes and rivers are undoubtedly our biggest attraction. But there’s plenty of other fun stuff to do, too. You can play 18 holes at one of our quality golf courses. Visit our parks for hiking, biking, boating and birding. Or drop in to one of our several community centers for tennis, pickleball and other games while the kids romp on the playgrounds. Plus, you can learn about our colorful past at the Columbia County Historical Museum. Located in an 1870s-era two-story house, each room displays a different historical era. It’s fun and educational!
