Review of Sebring, Florida


Boring and Poor is a terrible combination
Star Rating - 3/23/2018
I have been living in Sebring for 4 months while taking care of an elderly relative. The main attraction here is that real estate is low cost for Florida and makes sense to people from the Midwest. The locals are extremely poor and being a waiter or a school teacher is about the highest you could shoot for on the socioeconomic latter. The healthcare is crap and so level the of customer service. People here are pretty slow when it comes to common sense. Imagine a place where a waiter is not smart enough to bring your catsup with your french fries, straws with your coke, butter with your bread, or syrup with your pancakes. I have never witnessed such repeated stupidity in my life. It is also a terrible town for singles as there is very little to do if you aren't into golf or fishing. It seems as the mean age here is close to 84 years old. The town is also a nightmare to get to any airport. A taxi will cost you more than the flight itself. If you are consider retiring here I would urge you to reconsider. I have lived in worse places but never a place that is so boring. The locals here never smile, are extremely grumpy, slow minded, and rude. If you are single and under 40 this is not the place for you unless you want to end up with a redneck named Peggy Sue who wants to take you mudding with her toothless family down at lake Okeechobee.

What a rediculous review. I have lived in Avon Park, 7 miles from Sebring. I never found anyplace worth staying more than 7 years other than Marathon where I lived 16. This is a great place to live and the people here are great. Health care is also very good with two hospitals and more doctors than you can count, with most of them around Florida Hospital half way between Sebring and Avon Park. I find that review in extremely poor taste and rude. Where does this person get off with such moronic insults. Seems perhaps the problem is wiith the reviewer, not Sebring. How low can you go.
