With its majestic moss-covered oak trees and sweeping vistas, Bok Tower Gardens offers an experience unlike any in Central Florida. This National Historic Landmark, located on the peninsula's highest point, is invitingly quiet and serene.
The 157-acre woodland Gardens offer a place of solitude and relaxation. The many pathways leading to the Tower, pass seasonal blooms and friendly animals throughout the year. The Pine Ridge Preserve offers a one-mile trail among rare plants and animals of Florida's ancient sandhill, as well as the more common longleaf pines and turkey oaks. Window By the Pond nature observatory gives a glimpse of daily life in a freshwater pond.
Pinewood Estate, a 20-room Mediterranean Revival-style villa, open seasonally is one of the finest examples of this type of architecture in the State of Florida.
