When it comes to making summer sizzle, Lake and Sumter Style is giving Mother Nature a run for her money.

We’re turning up the heat a few degrees with our second annual Hot List, a compilation of everything that’s hot in Lake and Sumter counties. We would like to thank the thousands of readers who visited our website to cast their nominations. Now that the nominees are in place, we need you to vote for the hottest of the hot in the categories, which range from hottest people to hottest places and everything in-between.

Winners will be revealed in our August issue. And we promise you… this will be one of our hottest reads ever.
