On a romantic getaway to Disney World, we decided to pepper in some Old Florida to mix up our trip. The Citrus Tower is one such landmark that is not to be missed. It is the perfect reminder of a different tourist industry in Florida, and while the view of orange groves may be long gone, the tower itself remains... More

There was a time 50 years ago when you could see gorgeous green citrus groves as far as the eye could see from atop the Citrus Tower in Clermont. There's a nice gift shop in the lobby that has a range of items including Switch Flops. (Look them up ... a brilliant invention.)

When the Citrus Tower was built the area was covered with citrus groves that the tower celebrated. In the 60+ years since things have changed but the view of the surrounding area is still good. A fee of $6.00 is charged to take the elevator to the top where one finds 360 degrees of windows on the horizons with landmarks... More

We decided to go and visit this tower because the write up says you can see 8 counties from up there and walk around an observation deck. Disappointed because it was a $6.00 elevator ride inside a very old elevator that made me nervous. It was a 30 second walk around the observatory and that was it. The view was... More

We have been here twice now in three years and each time it was quiet (March). A great vantage point for fabulous views in all directions after a short ride up in the lift. Worth a look.

The citrus tower is a very historic place to visit. Nice pics of all the orange groves from long ago and how the frosts affected the crops. It's definitely a place to see while visiting.

Great view of mid Florida landscape. Situated half way between Gulf and Atlantic, you can see several lakes from atop this 500+ foot tower. Quick elevator ride up at modest price. Don't forget to read the history of this landmark located in the lobby!

Built in 1956 (probably when there was a nice view), now is not worth the price of admission. Cute Lilly's Gift Shop, but not much to see The day we were there, it was empty

The tower is visible as you drive around Clermont. It is so lovely at night and is an interesting part of history.
