Tucked away on the fringes of the city, Winchester Estates is a community of north Lakeland new homes where residents enjoy a country-like setting with convenient access to US-98 and I-4. One thing that really stands out about this particular area is the presence of local “mom and pop”-type establishments that vary from the normal hustle and bustle of a city, and provide a unique local flavor.
When it comes to restaurants, North Lakeland has the typical chain locations to satisfy your cravings like any city. However, there are also a variety of small, family-owned establishments that hit the spot and give you something a little different to look to enjoy. Eateries such as Granger & Sons Bar-B-Que, Sorrento Pizzeria & Restaurant, RJ Grady’s Burgers and Brew, Mamitas Diner and The End Zone Family Restaurant and Sports Bar all lie minutes away from Winchester Estates and have developed a local following for their great eats and drinks.

It’s official: Hurricane season has arrived. According to the State of Florida Division of Emergency Management, more hurricanes make landfall in Florida than any other state in the U.S. Are you prepared? What do you plan to do to protect your family and your Tampa, Lakeland or Orlando new home?
Below are some hurricane safety tips to help you protect yourself and your home.
Develop a family disaster plan: When the hurricane hits, where will you go, how will you get there and how will you care for your pets? The disaster plan will help you answer these and other questions.
Build a disaster supply kit: This should include everything your family will need for three days (as long as it may take disaster relief workers to reach you with supplies). Suggested items include water, food, medicine, important legal documents, clothing, pet supplies, flashlights, extra batteries and something to keep you entertained such as non-electronic games.
