What a discovery you've made ... Welcome to Highlands County!
Welcome to one of Florida’s best-kept secrets. Highlands County is a 1,028-square mile natural jewel that rests in the southern center of the Sunshine State. Talk about the best of both worlds…Highlands’ location means it is close enough to reach most major areas of Florida, yet removed enough for that get-away-from-it-all feeling. And, with several major airports nearby (in Tampa, Fort Myers and Orlando, with smaller airports in Sarasota and Palm Beach County), it’s easy to get here too.
