It is there

I couldn't believe that this is an attraction and that people actually go to it. Well we went to it. So I can say I been there. Can you?

Awesome place. For a small fee you can ride an elevator to the top of the tower and enjoy the fantastic 350 degree view of Central Florida. When your done peruse the small gift show or wander around the lobby and look at pictures of Clermont and the Citrus Tower back in the day!

This tower is pretty nice, not much there, but worth the few dollars they charge to go up! The elevator I thought was a little sketchy, but I am sure it gets inspected. There were tons of wasps up in the top of the tower, but they didn't bother us at all. They say they are attracted to the antennas... More

This is one of the oldest attractions in Central Florida and have been abandoned a lot. Most of the lots have been rented as a place or worship and also gift shop. The original view was Great looking at lakes and citrus trees but with all the new homes, bussiness, etc. Is not the same. Don't get me wrong the... More

Not sure why you would want a season pass for this..Exceptional views. Great history. Great stories and you can see for MILES. Everyone should experience this but can't imagine what would change that I need a season pass...

The history of this building is worth reading about, and was a major attraction decades ago. It kinda fell in to a neglected period until the current owners bought it about 20 years ago, and put a lot of time/effort/money back into the site. Gregg & his wife are to be commended! For the price of a cup of 'gourmet'... More

Interesting look out over the city of Clermont. You can see for miles. However we were there at the end of July and it was very hot at the top. It is all enclosed, without AC and no air circulation. Not sure it is worth the $6 fee to ride an elevator up there and stand in the heat for... More

Journey to the top of the tower for a spectacular view. Best time to go . . . just prior to sunset - you get to see it during daylight and as the lights come on. The view used to be ONLY orange groves - sadly, no longer. But, a beautiful view none the less.

I can't believe we drove past the tower for years and years before stopping in. Once inside, you'll find a lovely little gift shop and some interesting facts (and artifacts) about the tower. You pay $6 each to ride the elevator to the top. Once you pay, you are led by the friendly tower representative / gift shop associate to... More
