    The Florida Citrus Tower

    by alancollins Written Mar 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    The Florida Citrus Tower was built in 1956 and is 226 feet tall. As it stands on a small hill its actual height is over 500 feet above sea level making it the highest observation tower in Florida. Originally built to allow visitors to view the orange groves below.
    It costs $6 to ride the lift to the observation deck from which you can obtain some splendid views. It is now harder to spot any orange groves as the area below has now been taken over by roads and buildings. There is a small gift shop at the base. The tower is open from 9am to 5pm daily and is closed on Sundays.

    This is Lake County after all! Lots of lakes dot the landscape. You can rent a boat or canoe and head out on one of the lakes. From here you can access other lakes through interconnecting waterways such as the Crooked River. The pontoon is great for the family. The Lake County Blueways are trails for canoeists and kayakers in particular.

    Some rental companies:
    Royal Boat Rentals (352) 241-7666
    Clermont Bike Canoe Kayak (352) 241-4787
    Clermont Boat Club http://www.clermontwatersports.com/

    Crooked River Preserve

    Trail
    4 more images

    This is a nice little nature trail on the shores of Lake Louisa and the Crooked River in Lake County, Florida. The whole preserve is about 64 acres and has just one looping trail, but there are lots of birds and other wildlife to see here. My favourite are the beautiful cypress trees growing in the wet areas. Several federally-listed plant species grow here. Interpretive signs dot the path. Visiting the preserve is free and you are likely to have the place all to yourself. We spent 2.5 hours there. Don't forget your camera and binoculars!

    Trail map available online as well as in an information pamphlet available at the preserve entrance. Open sunrise to sunset year-round.

    the citrus tower

    citrus tower

    the citrus tower was built in 1956 on one of the highest hills in central florida's ridge area. the citrus tower is 226 feet tall and is 500 feet above sea level. on a clear day you can see 8 central florida counties from the citrus tower. when the citrus tower was built the clermont area was surounded by hundreds of orange groves. because of a hard freeze in the late 1980's and the urban sprawl of the orlando area the groves were replaced with housing developments and shopping centers. the citrus tower is an interesting relic of florida's pre disney past.

    Ritter's Frozen Custard

    by Babzz Updated Mar 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favourite destination in Clermont!

    Ok, ok, so this technically is a "food" tip, but Ritter's frozen custard is so good, it's a must-do when in Clermont! Frozen custard is an alternative name for "French Vanilla" ice cream, which has a lower amount of butterfat and contains a small amount of eggs, resulting in less fat, but a creamier, richer flavour. At Ritter's, they make fresh batches throughout the day and in a multitude of flavours. The results are delicious. Visiting Ritter's (multiple times...) is one of the highlights of my visits to Clermont! Yum!

    Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards

    by Babzz Written Apr 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A nice, local winery specialising in wines using muscadine grapes (native to the area), though other wines are also available (generally on the sweeter side). Tours and tastings run daily throughout the day and are free. The winery also has a nice picnic area and frequent events (see website).

    Until recently, Lakeridge Winery only offered wine directly from the winery, but now some local stores (e.g. Publix) are selling some of their wines. You can also order wines by phoning the winery or online at their website.

    Winery hours: Mon-Sat 10am-5pm; Sun 11am-5pm

    by Babzz Written Apr 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small but crammed museum has a lot of educational information about, and memorabilia from, all the past presidents and first ladies. Interesting displays include: model replicas of how the oval office looked during each president's time in office, gowns first ladies wore during inaugeration, biography for each president, the construction of the White House, etc. The price isn't cheap, but it's worth a visit if you are interested in American history.

    Entrance fee: Adults $11.95; Children 5-11 $6.95; Children under 5 free; complimentary pass for one full year with admission

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    about the only thing worth seeing in this town is the young girls, im only 20 myself, so dont think im a pervert, but there are some hot girls there....i sooo miss that. Oh, and there are some dam fine Golf Courses in this area, a little expensive, but worth it.
    Most of the people there were friendly, the people i worked with and just regular everyday people. It is a small town, compared to most cities. But it is still nice
