Map of Sebring
  • Highlands Little Theater.
  • 1 Highlands Hammock State Park, 5931 Hammock Rd, +1 863 386-6094. Is one of Florida's oldest state parks that opened in 1931. There is a three-mile scenic loop road with nine hiking trails and a boardwalk that runs through a swamp. There are two campgrounds in the park, both a primitive as a family ground. $6 per vehicle.    
  • Lake Istokpoga. A scenic lake located on US 98 southwest of Sebring. The access road can be found close to the bridge of Arbuckle Creek, and has a boat ramp and a wooden fishing pier that keeps fishers safe from the numerous alligators that live in this large and shallow lake. Large parts of the lake are covered by water plants. Airboat rides are offered nearby by Airboat Wildlife Adventures.
  • The Circle, or downtown Sebring. Unlike most towns in America, Sebring has no main street but is built around a circle instead, that is part of "Scenic Highway" SR. 17. The center of town is a quiet place with small shops. Through the years, most businesses have moved to US 27 leaving downtown shops struggling for customers.
