It's a rare slice of pre-Disney Florida that's still available today.26 story working tourist observation tower that's technically the highest point in Florida. Located on a 300 ft. hill in Clermont's hilly terrain (the 'Alps of Florida'), the 226ft. tower features an elevator ride to a windowed 360 degree observation deck.Today, the views are no longer dominated by endless rolling hills of oranges, grapefruit and many varieties thereof, as catastrophic freezes in the late 1980's destroyed the fragile fruit trees and never fully recovered.In sharp contrast, the view of endless rows of citrus has been replaced with subdivisions, shopping centers, restaurants, etc. Photos framed and mounted along the walls of the observation deck show the once pristine views of lakes, hills and groves...the contrast is startling. The view is still impressive.Pay a small fee, $6 per adults, $4 per child. "Ride to the Top" is the slogan. Board an elevator, look around for a few minutes, visit the gift shop at the base, and see the historical exhibit about the tower's construction in 1956.Worth a quick stop if you're in the Disney 192/Hwy 27 area.Bonus trip next door...The House of Presidents wax and historical Presidential artifacts.

Oh my.... what a serpent!Beware of Janet Cox. She will say one thing to your face, and then say a completely different thing behind your back. She cannot be trusted. It is difficult to deal with someone who is two-faced, so beware when dealing with her. Emily Phillips is great, and she should take over the business and push Janet aside. Janet is confrontational, demeaning, and rude in her interactions with folks. Her credibility is questionable as evidenced by her deceptive Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde personality.
