City of Sebring, Florida

Sebring calls itself, “The City on the circle.” It is home of the Sebring International Raceway, which was created on a former air base, and first used in 1950 and is named after George E. Sebring, a pottery manufacturer from Ohio who developed the city founded in 1912). Harder Hall Hotel is on the National Registry of Historic Places, it is currently abandoned, partially because of the number of paranormal occurrences that have happened here. The property has changed hands many times and every owner has died under unusual circumstances. Some of the accidents include: fire, flood, floor collapse, innumerable suicides, murders, and more. Witnesses see lights inside and hear music. As of 2004, it was purchased under the intent of making it a museum, but has not undergone more construction.

Highland Hammock State Park is a Florida State Park located west of Sebring in Highlands County, off of U.S. 27. It is one of the four original Florida State Parks, and is home to the state's only Civilian Conservation Corps Museum. The park is over 9000 acres of ancient oak hammocks and floodplain forests, and possesses some of Florida’s most unique and diverse collection of plant and animal life. Black bears, tortoises, Florida panthers, deer, alligators, and a variety of birds can be found roaming this massive park. Wildlife viewers will appreciate that Highland Hammock is also a part of the Great Florida Birding Trail. There are multiple campsites and nine nature trails, with ranger-guided tours consistently available throughout the year. Stock up on bug repellent, and come experience the real natural Florida at its best.
