No it is not called Yogis, Yogis is downtown... the bar you are speaking of right next to Hamock Rd and 27 is call the "Why Not" I live in Sebring.

Now as far as the drug problem, let's face it drugs are everywhere. I lived in a pish posh high end neighborhood up north, guess what? There were drugs and druggies there and it was not a city at all, even smller than Sebring, just richer people. I do not think there is any place perfect or a place that you could 110% say is a utopia. We live here, we see the drug problem here and is every other city and town in the country.. we do not associate with any of those types and stay away from the "bad" areas, yes we are raising a family here.

As much as there are the druggies and so forth, there are also a bunch of people like us, who do not do that kind of stuff and do not associate with them and live just fine. We keep our doors locked and do not go out of our way to make anyone mad...lol and everything stays peaceful.

Hey Jen, you're right. That IS familiar. And you're right...if you don't DO drugs, or know anyone who does drugs, somehow you just don't seem to encounter THOSE people.

The little town of Punta Gorda had a drug problem, yet I was NEVER offered any drugs. I wonder why that is? Maybe because I didn't go into the "problem area" of that town?

Default Sebring Reply

All that I've read about Sebring is basically true. I've been here since 1983 and I've seen it grow for better or worst quite a bit. If you "come from money" or make "good money" your life here can be very pleasant. If your like the rest of us it can vary from not much but peaceful to very discouraging. In season jobs can be had simple enough. You won't get rich and you might need two. When out of season it can be difficult finding work, so you keep what you can get (that means both jobs). One might argue that if you educated yourself more the opportunities will present themselves. I would argue that it takes education with lots of perseverance and a very thick skin with a ducks back. The buddy system is in full effect here. I guess that can be good and bad depending on who your buddies are. There are many beautiful homes and neighborhoods in Sebring. There is also extreme poverty (I'm talking shacks). Crime doesn't run ramped, I mean it's here but usually it's not that intense. There is however the sporadic cycle of very violent crimes. This is usually due to some sort of drug related issue. You don't hear much of that but it's here, just like everywhere else. I would like to see more "mom and pop" businesses return. Corporate businesses and chain businesses here really rob the area of it's small town charm. I really like this area and I'm raising a child of my own here, but I guess like anywhere and everywhere else, sometimes things get tough. Oh, and I also think Harder Hall is haunted in shining sort of way. yahooguy863

Are there alligators in Sebring, Florida? We have a son and his family in Jacksonville and would like to be closer, but I am scared to death of the thought of alligators coming into my yard.
