Coin drop at the Citrus Tower.

Citrus Tower

The Citrus Tower has been around since the fifties. My mom remembers going up in it when she was a little girl and it was surrounded by groves and groves of orange trees. Now it's surrounded by neighborhoods and grove graveyards, but the view is still fun to see. There is a penny drop at the top where you put coins in and they fall all the way to the ground. Before we left I saw a sign advertising Elvis appearances on Thursday afternoons! Visit the Wax Presidents Museum next door while your're at it and eat some good BBQ at Jack Benny's in Minneola.
