Citrus Tower Inc
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.

ERA Real Estate
The agent i worked with at era clermont was Diannah Miguel. She was the most encouraging, positive, and supportive real estate agent i have ever worked with. She stood by me and encouraged me with positive reinforcement over the course of the nearly year it took to sell my house.She even came over and helped me clean. She was honest and kind and always called back, explained the market clearly , and that in my experience is rare in the real estate business. It took me a few realtors to find her. She took a personal interest in making dreams come true for me and the buyer. I am proud to know her and recommend her highly.

Just a moment...
