Sebring is in the heart of South Florida, more than an hour north of Lake Okeechobee and an hour south of Lake Wales. It is surrounded by ranches and citrus groves as well as some significant natural areas along the Kissimmee River and the Lake Wales Ridge.
Home to one of Florida’s oldest state parks, Highlands Hammock, Sebring is best known as a destination for speed. Sitting among the lakes of Highlands County, it hosts top-flight auto racing events with drivers from around the world. Sebring is also known for golfing and bass fishing in its lakes, particularly Lake Istokpoga to the south of town.
