According to visitsebring.com, “Home to a park system that wows with outdoor wonders, Sebring naturally allures visitors. Otters, alligators and deer take shelter in our hardwood forests, pine flatwoods and cypress swamps, giving visitors a glimpse of wildlife along our nature trails. Boat ramps, fishing piers and swim centers provide easy access to our waterways from public parks.
Located in Central Florida, Sebring occupies the southern end of the Lake Wales Ridge, a 100-mile-long range of sand hills, scrub and freshwater lakes. Once a group of prehistoric islands, the area is home to dozens of rare species of plants and animals.
Birds, including scrub jays, swallow-tailed kites, bald eagles, osprey and sandhill cranes, all in their native habitat, can be seen and heard.
The area has extensive bikeways, including several routes through the very beautiful and popular Highlands Hammock State Park, as well as routes from 10-100 miles long on other scenic roads. There are hiking, canoe and trails in the State Park and on the grounds of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Archbold Biological Station, and the Avon Park Air Force Range – all large conservation management areas covering thousands of acres.”
