The Citrus Tower of Florida
The CITRUS TOWER.

The tower is a throwback tourist attraction of a bygone era. You used to go up it to SEE and experience the vastness of the Florida Orange in all its' glory - you used to be able to see orange groves for many miles....now the tower is a sad reminder of Florida suburban sprawl that has reduced the groves to small patches of cultivation. This was once the most popular and visible attraction in Orlando!

I took my young son up to see it...and to gaze upon what few oranges are still being grown in this area, as by the time he is an adult, they and this tower will be gone.

So, if you are into "Old Florida" to get a break from "Mickey," this is a fun place to visit.
