Beautiful – I grew up in Lake Wales and was at Bok Tower every summer. It is great for picnics, taking pictures, relaxing, and enjoyinga break from the everyday life. There are lots of nice places to hike, as well as places to just sit and enjoy nature. At Christmsa there are lots of special events in the Gardens, and they decorate for Christmas at Pinewood (an old Spanish style house owned by Bok Tower Sanctuary).
I recommend this for any couple, family, or single person who appreciates nature. You will not leave without a couple fond memories.
Wonderful Wonderful – Bok Tower is a wonderful get away from the busy city. Very romantic and welcoming. Highly recommend.
Savor the beauty of Florida's floral and fauna surrounding the popular Bok Tower. – In Short
A national historic landmark, Bok Sanctuary consists of Bok Tower, Pinewood Estate and a sanctuary museum. Created in 1923 by Edward Bok, the Sanctuary offers visitors a chance to enjoy a slower pace. Must-see areas include the tower and its carillon music, the Pinewood Nature Preserve Trail and the children's secret gardens. The Sanctuary is a part of the Florida Birding Trail. The Gardens also host a number of events, including art exhibits and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
Amazing Getaway – I have been here both with family and my boyfriend, and it is a wonderful spot to relax, have a picnic (if you can get the squirrels to stay away, they'll eat right out of your hand :) ) and just walk and admire the gardens. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
