Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, FL

Today, we visited Bok Tower Gardens, a “must see Florida attraction” centrally located between Tampa and Orlando among rolling hills of citrus!

Nearly 50 acres of Olmsted gardens surround Pinewood Estate, a 1930s Mediterranean-style mansion, and the 205-foot art deco and neo-Gothic Singing Tower housing one of the world’s finest carillons with 60 bells that ring every half hour and during daily concerts.

The National Historic Landmark was dedicated in 1929 as a gift from Dutch immigrant Edward Bok, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and world peace advocate.
