Two major interstate highways bisect the county, intersecting near Lake City: I-75 runs north and south, while I-10 runs east and west. The county benefits from the large number of tourists who travel through the area, headed for the Atlantic coast or the Florida peninsula to the south. Other economic factors include agriculture, with products such as tobacco, melons, cotton, corn, peanuts, and timber.

Lake City was originally named Alligator because it was established next to a Seminole Indian settlement called Alligator Village in about 1830. The named was changed in 1859, when the mayor’s wife moved to town and refused to hang her lace curtains in a place called Alligator. The new name was chosen to recognize the many lakes in the area.
