Bok Tower Gardens

Bok Tower CarrilonLet’s get out of the bubble and go to the beautiful Bok Tower Gardens! Sit back, chat with old friends, and make new ones on the two-hour drive to the famous Lake Wales ridge. Explore a garden path or snag a $7 discounted ticket to see El Rotiro, a  gorgeous museum house. Have lunch at the light and bright café. Rest your feet at the beautiful visitor center to view the museum exhibits and catch a video. Take photos on the longer garden paths and wildlife viewing areas, and soak up an outdoor Carillon concert. Meet Cheryl Peterson, Conservation Manager, who will give us a behind-the-scenes tour of their lab. Before the day flies by, be sure to visit the gift shop and maybe bring home a treasure!
