More About
Lake City, FL

About Lake CityPrior to 1830, Lake City was called Alpata Telophka, or Alligator Village, by its original residents, the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Sixty miles west of Jacksonville, today Lake City also is known as "The Gateway to Florida," since many tourists drive through the town via I-75 and I-10 on their way to destinations further south.

Stop here for some outdoor fun: Ride a bike or hike on trails along the Suwanee River or hit the links at several local country clubs. Be inspired by football player and sportscaster Pat Summerall, who hailed from Lake City and played baseball, basketball, football and tennis at Columbia High School.
