This is a classic central Florida tourist attraction with a long history. Worth a stop, but difficult to compete with the likes of Disney, Universal and Lego. It is quaint and definitely worth a short stop.

Really nice to see one of florida's first tourist destinations. (before Walt Disney&all other theme parks) There is a small but really good display on how the citrus tower developed over the years... We could image how it once was and what a big adventurous trip this was in this era.

Have to go through a small gift shop to take a short elevator ride to the top. Over priced for a view that you would need binoculars to see any distance($6.00 per adult). In the day probably beautiful but this day your looking at subdivisions and no orange groves.

This is something that you could do once and not do again... it's kind of pricey for basically just taking a short elevator ride. The views are decent, but for what you pay, you don't end up staying long at all.

I have grown up in Clermont area and have been up in the tower many times over the years. It has changed so much! It's worth the money just to go up and see everything. I recommend bringing binoculars and/or a zoom lens for your camera.

View is great but it is overpriced and you have to walk through a highly scented gift shop to access the elevator.

We went on a Sunday, it wasn't open, the signage for it was terrible, and it looks quite run-down. I wouldn't bother with this one if I were you...lol

Interesting read of the plight of the orange groves. I'm sure at one time it was quite the sight when orange groves covered the landscape. But, today the surrounding land is housing developments and commercial businesses. Not a "scenic view". However, it does give one a view of the many surrounding lakes. Be sure to visit on a clear day... More

I took my family who is visiting from Europe on a Florida road-trip. I was told to stop at the citrus tower. Little did I know how disappointing this experience was. You pay to go up an old elevator with a pair of broken binocular. There is no narration, no one to talk about the history of the tower. Once... More

I moved to Clermont in July but have been waiting until my college age sons came home to go up. I shouldn't have waited!! AWESOME views!! Downtown Orlando, the Orlando Eye and Epcot globe are all clearly visible on a clear day. The old photos (to the right of the gift shop) show "the old days" of the citrus groves.... More
