Nice smooth ride up in the elevator...great views....nice gift shop and small exhibit which I would showcase more. It's sad that they get few visitors....tickets were $6. Each....don't forget to take some change to drop... More

The woman who sold us our ride to the top was very friendly & informative. The $6 price per person was fair for a quick visit of a historical landmark. The view at the top was nice and likely would have been even better had it been a clear day & we had binoculars.

The Florida Citrus Tower is a 226 foot tall structure built in 1956. Once the most famous landmark of the Orlando area. With the antenna reaching over 500 feet above sea level, it is the highest observation point in Florida. In early 2015, the Citrus Tower received a new paint job, giving it a new but retro look, with an... More

This tower allows someone to see for miles and miles into this wonderful area. The people were informed and pointed out several areas of interest. We took our granddaughters and they loved it as well.

Swung by Sunday afternoon to find the tower closed but was able to get a picture. Would like to come back during the week to take the elevator ride to see it but not in any rush.

It was a fascinating piece of history. The outside of the building is a little run down, but inside was okay. The kids had a good time reading the paper on the history of the tower and looking out the windows. I would definitely recommend binoculars as stated in other reviews above. When we came back down, we took a... More

For the price of $6 it was worth the elevator ride to the top to see for many miles surrounding the Clermont area. I would make sure you pick a clear day and take binoculars.
