Avon Park is a very small town. It is about 1.25 hrs from Orlando and 1.75 hrs from Tampa. There is not much there, frankly. Sebring is larger (albeit still small relatively speaking), but there is much more in terms of shopping and other activties. There are 2 hospitals in Sebring and the area community college is in Avon Park.

a great side trip for a day is Bok Tower & Gardens, in Lake Wales.
