The promise was of 'a magnificent panoramic view of . . rolling hills and hundreds of spring-fed lakes' - all from a 'splendid landmark'. We'd have loved this to have been our experience but it fell a long way short. Instead we found a very tired building in drab concrete, a very uninviting elevator to take us to the top,... More

I believe this Citrus Tower has been around since the 70's and was one of the popular roadside attraction. We did go up to the top of the tower. There is plenty of great views from the top...not much or if any orange groves left around there. Its mostly all developed around there now. There is a really cute gift... More

We love visiting these roadside tourist attractions built prior to the 1970's. The Citrus Tower was built in 1956 and stands at 226ft in height. We visited for the Christmas light show which was nice and is free to view from the parking lot. We visited the gift shop and read all about the history of the tower and enjoyed... More

One of the best Christmas light shows in the area which is free. The lights work with music to make a very enjoyable time viewing the lights and listening to the music that is coordinated. A good place to spend a little time. In addition you can go up the tower and view as many as six counties in the... More

My family and I were in the area checking out some local attractions taking a break from the Orlando theme parks. For those not familiar, to quote from their website: "The Citrus Tower stands unrivaled as a majestic and monumental tribute to Central Florida’s famed citrus industry and its lush subtropical groves. With the area’s changing economic climate, the Tower... More

We passed through clermont on the way to Mount Dora so stopped at the citrus tower. It is a piece of history and a lot of interesting information and facts about the tower. It was $6 to visit, the lady in the shop was really friendly and took time out to show us all the interesting pic's and historical information.... More

The tower was initially built to view large citrus groves. The groves are no longer there. The views from the top of the tower are still spectacular.

My sister got married at the Valencia Room on the bottom floor of the Citrus Tower. It's a separate business that just rents out space in the building. Well my sister wanted to go up to the top of the tower to have pictures taken. When we got up there (only 4 people could go in the elevator at a... More

We take all guest to the Citrus Tower. it's an inexpensive way to see the beautiful area with its hills and lakes. The gift shop is nicely decorated and it it through the gift shop that you pay and enter the elevator to the top of the Tower. The history of the tower is outside of the gift shop.
