Welcome to the best small city in Florida! Sebring is located in Highlands County, one of Florida’s best-kept secrets. This jewel rests in the southern heart of the state, close enough to most major metropolitan areas of Florida, yet far enough away to maintain that relaxed, small-town atmosphere.
Sebring has it all, from the exciting Sebring International Raceway and the 12 Hours of Sebring, the country’s oldest auto race, to the peaceful Highlands Hammock State Park. This park features campsites, a wildlife sanctuary, and recreation area. Some trees here are thought to be 1,000 years old! Here you can find Florida’s oldest oak and the country’s tallest Sable palm. Nestled amid rolling hills, surrounded by citrus groves, and rich with untouched open space, Sebring is a wonderful place to live an active lifestyle.
