    Pinewood Gardens at Bok Towers

    Favorite thing: Pinewood is a depression-era mansion that was originally built for a Pittsburgh steel-magnate. I haven't been on a tour of the house, but the gardens are an interesting example of the Mediterranean landscape design. The grounds of the Bok Tower are located on what can actually be recognized as a ridge. This is a part of Florida where there is actually a hill, and surprisingly, there are real "views".

    Favorite thing: While visiting Lake Wales, one must visit Bok Tower Gardens, Spook Hill, Chalet Suzanne, the downtown area and take a stroll around Lake Walies Lake.

    Fondest memory: Growing up in Lake Wales provided me with a sense of community and security. The town has a small town sense with a big town flare for society affairs. I have many fond memories and this website isn't equipped to hold all of them.
