Paris, Pisa . . . and Polk County. No visit would be complete without visiting their famous tourist towers. And Florida has not one but three historic towers that draw visitors near and far to experience a bird’s-eye view of the sunshine state.
Perched on hilltops along the Lake Wales Ridge (an ancient sand dune that runs up the spine of Florida) these quirky roadside attractions celebrate peace, prosperity and citrus. In their heyday, they saw hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Today they’re monuments to Florida’s colorful tourism history.
