Florida Citrus Tower

The Florida Citrus Tower is a 226-foot-tall (69 m) structure built in 1956 in Clermont, Florida. Once the most famous landmark of the Orlando area, it was built to allow visitors to observe the miles of orange groves surrounding it; developments in the citrus industry since its construction have left it providing a view of suburban neighborhoods today. At more than 500 feet above sea level, it is the highest observation point in Florida.

The Citrus Tower includes a wishing well, where you can hear your coin drop all the way to the bottom, and all proceeds are donated to Green Isle Children Ranch. A new addition to the Citrus Tower is their new banquet facility, ROOM: Valencia.
