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 such a fun place to come. We've taken our 23 yr old son, who has autism there several times because he loves putting his ear next to a slot where you can drop a penny...and hear it drop the whole way down and when it gets to the bottom you hear a CLINK sound. He would spend all... More

This tower was build to honor America. The views from the top are incredible in all four directions with display cards listing what attractions are in the area. They have a beautiful gift shop with all kinds of items and they are reasonably priced. The tower plays music either on the 1/2 hour or hour, and it's especially beautiful at... More

My husband and I made a trip to see the Citrus Tower and found it to have been worth the hour drive from The Villages. 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
