Delicious fresh orange juice

We stop here every time we are in this area. Great gift shop and fresh orange juice. Free samples. In addition there is clean modern restrooms. Had no issues parking a large RV.

We stopped at the visitors center, bought some orange honey. We watched videos on how the orange juice is made across the street from the center. They gave out free juice samples! The staff was very friendly and informative!! Highly recommend stopping in!

I was very disappointed with this. Essentially it's just a museum and a store.I thought it was going to be a tour of the orange juice plant. NOT

You can get samples of various juices that the plant across the highway makes. Has a museum quality exhibition on the surrounding history. Very interesting.

I would recommend stopping on your way to Bok Tower Gardens. We took a gaggle of small kids and they loved trying the orange juice and seeing the history.

I recommend it as a place to visit in Lake Wales. I was hoping for a plant tour, and they might have those, but it was more of a local monument to the Lake Wales area.

There's also a... More

Most informative visitor center with everything imaginable made from oranges for purchase including soaps, hand lotions, air freshners, candies, jams, jellies, teas, sauces, dressings, popcorn and of course their juices!
