About the Area
With so much to offer, it's no wonder more, and more people are calling Lake Placid home. Just ask Reader's Digest, who voted it “America's Most Interesting Town.” Also known as the “Caladium Capital of the World,” Lake Placid features 26 beautiful hand-painted murals depicting the area’s history, Toby’s Clown School, and the historic Happiness Tower, which rises 270 feet above the ground. Choose from one of the area’s many lakes to enjoy popular recreational activities like boating, fishing, and water sports. Citrus groves and farms are also plentiful, providing a local supply of fresh produce year-round.
Named the fourth most beautiful town in Florida by The Culture Trip travel advisor, Sebring is home to more than 100 freshwater lakes, award-winning golf courses, Highland Hammock State Park and the world-renowned Sebring International Raceway. Founded in 1912 by Ohio industrialist George Sebring, the “City on the Circle” continues to extend small-town hospitality marked by warm traditions and solid values. This charm is balanced with the area’s progressive economic growth.
The City of Wauchula makes up one of the nation’s top agricultural centers, where prize-winning livestock brings top dollar, and sweet Valencia oranges are always in demand. Life in the area offers an abundance of fresh air, friendly neighbors, affordable living and hometown fun. This slower pace of living unites the community, making it safe for children to walk to school and adding character to historic downtown shops and restaurants.
