The Sun ‘N Lake Improvement District, a 7,000-acre community, was established by the County Commission in 1974. It provides a wide variety of residential choices complemented by schools, streets, bridges, sidewalks, recreation facilities and a country club with four nine-hole championship courses, six Har-Tru tennis courts and a swimming pool. Other planned communities include the Spring Lake area, the Country Club of Sebring and Golf Hammock, all members of the Sebring Chamber of Commerce. Two new residential golf course communities are scheduled to begin development in the near future.
Retirement communities have developed over the past decade and serve the senior residents of this Heartland community, providing the freedom of independent living without the hassles and responsibilities of home ownership.

Retirement communities also provide seniors with an array of activities and social events designed to keep their residents young at heart. Planned field trips to museums, restaurants and the performing arts, as well as transportation to shopping and healthcare services are all popular with many senior residents.
