One of the great landmarks in central Florida is the World Famous Citrus Tower located in Clermont. In the past it was used as a place to look over the thousands of acres of citrus groves that populated all of central Florida. Today it is used as a tourist attraction and the view of the citrus groves are shared with a view of rooftops.
Downtown Clermont is a nice place to visit and stroll down the street looking at the small shops and business scattered throughout the downtown area. Being next to Lake Minneola makes it a great place to enjoy a Sunday afternoon with the family.
