There's a reason why such a large number of retirees flock to Florida the first chance they get. The sun is always shining, the beaches are beautiful with crystal clear water, and there is an abundance of activities. If you live in Highland City, you are incredibly lucky because you are nearly equidistant from two large Floridian muttropolises: Tampa and Orlando.
In closer proximity to Highland City, you will find an abundance of small lakes, ponds, rivers, and parks. Each park has beautiful scenery with plenty to see and do for you and your pooch. Just make sure you take a camera with you to take some beautiful photos!
You can also head to Tampa or Orlando for delicious dog-friendly food and shopping. You and Fido will be pawsitively spoiled for choice for things to do in either city. Tampa is just a 45-minute drive away, while Orlando is a little further afield at a little over an hour, depending on traffic.
In addition to being close to theme parks, restaurants, forest preserves, and much more, Highland City is not too far from beaches on the east or west coast of Florida. This makes Highland City and its surrounding areas a paw-adise for any human or pup that loves the water!
