Shands at Lake Shore
Although Lake City is growing rapidly, the city strives to maintain a warm and friendly hometown atmosphere while offering many of the same amenities associated with larger cities. Lake City is the economic and governmental center for Columbia County. Lake City has grown into a town that, while cherishing its small-community charm and manners, it is forward thinking enough to plan, organize, develop, and support modern conveniences and amenities. A variety of businesses thrive in Lake City and employ thousands of workers in professions that range from mining to manufacturing. Tourism is also a benefit to the area as Interstates 10 and 75 cross here, supporting more than two thousand motel rooms and numerous eateries.
