South Florida Community College is worth a visit. We have enjoyed MOFAC, Museum of Florida Art and Culture which has permanent and visiting exhibits. SFCC also has a Performing Arts series Dec.-Mar. Something for any taste. The college also offers community education and many courses open to all. SFCC is one of our GEMS!
Another GEM is Highlands Little Theatre. HLT offers many opportunities for those interested in the performing arts. HLT provides great entertainment for those of us who just want to socialize, eat, and enjoy a usually very fine if not great performance.
The raceway is of international fame. Frequently something going on of interest.
Another place to tent camp is Fisheating Creek Resort in the south end of the county on US HWY 27. Might be mosquito haven this time of year. Highlands Hammock is a better choice and close to Sebring.
Throughout the year there are usually races, hot air balloons in the fall, Pig Fest BBQ in Jan., county fair in Feb., 12 Hours of Sebring Race in Mar. 2nd Saturday events on the circle thru-out the year, arts and craft show, gallery walks, experimental aircraft show, bicycle and bike events and others.
Sebring has two beaches on Lake Jackson accessible to the public.
Places to eat we have enjoyed include:
Yiannis Prime Choice in Fairmont Cinema Square.
Homer's Buffet in Sebring Square.
Olive Garden on HWY 27 just south of Lowe's.
Red Lobster at LakeShore Mall.
Charlie's Steak & Seafood on S Commerce at circle.
Chicane's at Inn on the Lakes.
Don Jose's just off HWY 27
Sunset Grill on the lake.
We have many other favorites, each with something unique that we enjoy.
Highlands County is for golfers, fisherpeople, retirees (about 40% age 60 or older)and offers good quality of life on a budget. Taxes are much lower than coastal communities. Law enforcement is strict.
(good) Slight breezes in summer. Friendly people.
Come and enjoy!
