Discovering My Own Backyard


On behalf of Akers Media Group, I am proud to introduce you to the first Welcome to Lake County Visitors and Newcomers Guide. Almost a year ago, publisher Kendra Akers asked me to write an ongoing series of articles for Lake & Sumter Style magazine about the cities in Lake County, Florida, which became the basis for the visitors guide. Kendra knew how much I loved traveling, meeting new people, and exploring interesting places. This opportunity to discover my own backyard, so to speak, meant I could still do those things and not have to pack a bag. I readily agreed to the project with enthusiasm.

Sunset at Lake Eustis

On my journey through Lake County, I was reminded how incredibly rich this area is when it comes to natural environments and resources. No other place can match the inland sunsets over Lake Eustis, abundant fishing on Lake Griffin, or challenging bicycle rides on the Lake Minneola Scenic Trail the way Lake County, Florida, does.
