Turn your clocks back to the 50s.

This was a great tourist attraction in the 50s. It is a little worn by time but an interesting stop.

A little harder to find now that things have grown up around it. Once it was a tower in a field of orange trees, hence the name. Still worth seeing because it offers great views of the highway. If the moving Orlando Eye is not your speed maybe this is. Low admission price. I waited approximately 40 years to see... More

The Citrus Tower is a MUST when you are visiting Clermont. I love the history behind the building. When you take the elevator up to the top you can see a great view of the lakes and surrounding area. They have the cutest gift shop on the main floor. I try to take all my visiting friends and family to... More

Be sure to take pix of the kids up there...they're going to be delighted with it. Remember it's not Disney World, but it's worthwhile. Adjoining is the WONDERFUL House of Presidents (not Disney either, but terrific.) Gift shop is fabulous for unusual, patriotic gifts. Around $3 is a plastic "place mat" with pix and dates of every president and their... More

I like the idea of this tower, and can see why it is an attraction. However we had a negative experience as soon as we entered the door. The attendant was not welcoming or helpful at all. When asked about the history of the tower instead of telling us a little about it, she just told us to read the... More

Old and outdated from days gone by, the AC in the tower was broke, when we asked the lady downstairs to explain the history of the tower, she was very rude, stating I would rather you just read the brochure. Was a waste of time and 20 bucks for the family to go up the elevator

Take elevator to the top & on a clear day see surrounding area of Central FL. Photos on first floor are great from time before the FL Turnpike was completed & everyone drove south thru Clermont on Highway 27!

Ehh, I don't know why but I just don't find it all that thrilling. I guess because Florida is so flat and I prefer beaches. This just does not seem like a big deal for me.

Years ago this probably was great but now you just look over housing developments. Not worth the price for trip to top. Cute gift show and pictures of historical moments of interest.

This is a reasonably priced local attraction that is fascinating. It's an excellent trip down memory lane of old world Florida.
