The Citrus Tower

Classic Florida

A fun old-school adventure in Central Florida is the Citrus Tower.
A little over 30 minutes from Walt Disney World, an hour and a half from both New Smyrna Beach and Crystal River, it is one of the original Florida attractions!
A visit to the Citrus Tower really makes for a great morning or afternoon adventure.

It’s open 9-5 Monday- Saturday and closed on Sundays.
The cost in January 2015 was: $6 adult $4 children.
Purchase your ticket in the gift shop and ride to the top.
Stay as long as you like.

May I suggest reading the information on the Citrus Tower from their website as you travel to it!

What I really like about the Citrus Tower is the history and simplicity.

An original attraction, before Mickey and Universal, I-Drive and Mall of Millenia.

Simple is good.
Makes you stop and talk. Laugh and enjoy.

The Presidents Hall of Fame sits next door and it worth a look around their gift shop. We found it a little creepy, yet intriguing and funny. Had this not been a tight budget and short time trip we may have paid to see beyond the gift shop.

We had packed a lunch and ate in Waterfront Park, but may I suggest lunch and play at Lake Hiawatha Preserve, they have a new play ground and dog park (November 2014).

That’s it!
A nice visit,
good conversation in the car
and a mini-vacation to refuel and refresh!

Let me know if you make this memory happen in your world!

Happy travels,
