I spend a few weekends with friends in Clermont and we have decided to dive into the local attractions and visit each one during the weekend. This was our first one...one can only imagine how the landscape looked 50 years ago. There are interesting artifacts...More

Really inexpensive, elevator ride to the top. Excellent views of the surrounding hills and lakes. Old maps show how it looked before the Orange groves were replaced by houses. It plays music on the hour.

We drove to the tower and took photos from the ground level. Didn't want to party to ascend. Didn't look like a big deal.

Pretty cool attraction to go see. The price was worth it to go to the top. I would suggest coupling the Citrus Tower with the President Hall of Fame next door.

This land lighthouse is to be visited by any and by all that are close enough to see from afar. Do not expect a Disney experience. Expect a poetic discovery --- write it down for yourself and for future selves to come. wls

Gosh, I can't think of any that come to mind. Do you know where in FL it was? A more specific area might help jog the memory!
