Drawing in a remarkable number of visitors, The Lake Club was the most visited enclave of Lakewood Ranch during the event which ran from October 20 until November 19.

During the Tour of Homes 1,026 attendees explored resplendent model and move-in ready homes in The Lake Club's micro-communities. Each residence was meticulously built by the region's renown luxury homebuilders, including Arthur Rutenberg Homes, John Cannon Homes, Lee Wetherington Homes, London Bay Homes, Nutter Custom Construction and Stock Signature Homes. Both Anchor Builders and Murray Homes also have exquisite properties available for viewing, though they were not on display during the event.
