  • Highlands Hammock State Park - just off...

    A "Hammock" is a particularly kind of hardwood forest that grows in swampy regions. Central Florida once abounded in this kind of growth, but the number and extent of the hammocks has been greatly reduced due to ever increasing development of strip malls, retirement communities, and golf courses. Hammocks provide excellent habitat for all kinds of...

Sebring Restaurants

  • Best pizza in town

    Excellent service and definitely the best pizza in town. The personal attention from Mike, the owner is superb. And the prices are reasonable. Family pizza, one pie large enough for a family of 6. Their pasta is also fabulous.

  • Good Food in Sebring

    Probably the only upscale restaurant in Sebring, Chicanes is the restaurant at the Inn on the Lakes hotel and it is highly regarded among the locals. They have a nice atmosphere/ambiance and a view of the lake on the west side of the dining room. The dinner menu typically features 3 or 4 daily specials along with a regular menu of pastas, steaks,...

  • Earl Grey and Scones

    A cute little tea "shoppe" that's just opened in Sebring, up from the traffic circle. The owners went on holiday in England and loved the tradition of afternoon tea, so they decided to open their own little place here. A wide range of teas and tarts and sweets is on hand, served on the ground floor of a 1920s bungalow. Light sandwiches and salads...

Sebring Nightlife

    This is a good place to go for live entertainment, they usually have rock/blues bands on the weekends with plenty of room for dancing. They have an outdoor bar area that has a Tiki Bar look to it so it makes it extra fun. We only ate here once and although it wasn't anything to write home about it also wasn't bad, just kind of standard fare, the prices were pretty decent though for what you got.

    Dress Code: Just anything goes from what I could tell.

    Sebring has some excellent thrift shops and they are all within walking distance of the downtown circle. I love to visit St. Vinnie's (aka St. Vincent de Paul) when I'm down here. On my most recent visit, I picked up a porcelain miniture of Gainsborough's "Blue Boy" for only a buck - to add my collection of "Blue Boy" memorabilia.

    What to pay: Much less than you''d think

    the romance of Floridian epiphytes

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here's a fun fact to know and tell: "Spanish Moss," which you'll see plenty of in Sebring, is not Spanish, and it's not a moss!

    It's not a "parasite" on its host, either. Spanish moss is "epiphytic" - that is, it makes its own "food" from the atmosphere. Read all about it here:

Sebring Warnings and Dangers

    There are plenty of lakes in Highlands Couny, where Sebring (and its sister city Avon Park) are located. These bodies of water are home to a varied assortment of critters: waterfowl of different sizes, opposum, rabbit, alligators, and the occasional bobcat. You really shouldn't disrupt the natural equilibrium of nature by feeding creatures which are "cute." (Now if I could just persuade my stepmother not to put out scraps of bread for her raccoon friends!)

    my old Florida home

    by yooperprof Written Jul 2, 2007

    Favorite thing: Sebring orients itself to Lake Jackson, a medium sized body of water that provides many recreational opportunities for the residents here. Along the shores of Lake Jackson, you can find many examples of traditional Florida homes from 60 or 70 years ago, in a style that might be called vernacular Spanish colonial.
