“scenic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Nice and scenic. It is shorter than you expect but worth a visit. This is a good place to get away from the beach. It is visited by many so don't expect a private experience.

“Top of the World, MA!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Not the best view from the top, but the construction on the walkway is a wonder and the trip to the top of the tower is terrific. Stop and shake the framework and the world will rock with you. Go on a clear and not breezy day for a more sedate experience.

“Timing Must Be Important”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Obviously a lot of money and volunteer labor spent on this but we had difficulty finding it, accessed it from the wrong pathway because signage isn't quite up to snuff and at 4PM there was not one bird heard nor seen after climbing a lot of stairs!

“Perfect way to see SRQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

While there isnt much to see city or shopping wise around town. Besides Siesta Key and Ringling this is another must see spot in Sarasota! To be over the tree line and over look the city is quite a sight!
