Community Highlight – Lakeland

The community highlight of the week is focusing on Lakeland Trails. This quaint community is situated right in the delightful city of Lake Mills, WI. Lake Mills brings a charming environment that is perfect for people of all ages. The tight-knit community feel brings a unique atmosphere that is not found in many places in the state. The city itself resides directly off the shore of Rock Lake, making it a perfect place to enjoy everything nature has to offer. Miles of scenic trails and water views are visible at the nearby Glacier Drumlin Trail and Rock Lake is a perfect spot to enjoy water activities, such as kayaking. Aztalan State Park is another popular spot for those who enjoy hiking and biking. Once you finish a day out in the sun, there are a handful of shopping and dining opportunities right in town to partake in with family and friends. Throughout the summer and fall months, there are many local festivals and events to take part in. “Paint the Town” is a particularly popular event that brings people from all around to dine, dance, and participate in activities that raise money for the town. The community of Lakeland Trails itself is nestled right in residential Lake Mills. Its sister community, Lakeland, is also nearby. The communities are family friendly, as well as pet friendly. There is also an on-site community center for residents to use and enjoy. If a quiet community nestled in the heart of a vibrant small-town intrigues you, Lakeland Trails could be an ideal choice for your next home.
