BOK Christmas Spectacular, Citrus Candy Factory and Historic Downtown Lakeland
Today we are off to visit one of Florida’s most remarkable experiences, dazzling visitors since 1929. Beautifully decorated for the holiday season. There are events, displays, music, and entertainment. A complete and enjoyable day.
Nestled in the heart of seven and one-half lush acres at Bok Tower Gardens is Pinewood Estate, the enchanting 20-room Mediterranean-style mansion. Originally named “El Retiro,” meaning “retreat” in Spanish, the Estate was built in the early 1930s for Charles Austin Buck, a Bethlehem Steel vice president.
Today you will enjoy Admission to the Bok Gardens and enjoy admission and a self guided tour of Pinewood Estate. It is beautifully decorated for the Holiday Season and not to be missed! Lunch will be provided for you on these beautiful grounds, and there will be much leisure time to fully enjoy the day.
“Bok Tower Gardens boasts one of the greatest works of famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. The meandering, historic landscape garden was designed to be a contemplative and informal woodland setting offering a series of romantic recesses and tranquil resting spots, picturesque vistas and breathtaking views of the Singing Tower. Acres of ferns, palms, oaks and pines fashion a lush backdrop for flowering foliage and the spectacular seasonal color of azaleas, camellias and magnolias (a highlight of our spring peak bloom season) showcasing an ever-changing work of art.”
And looking up at the 205-foot neo-Gothic and art deco Singing Tower carillon is an experience like no other. The Tower houses one of the world’s finest carillons. Concerts from the 60-bell carillon at 1 and 3 p.m. fill the Gardens daily.
Before heading home, we will stop in historic downtown Lakeland for some leisure time and shopping!
This is a wonderful day out and not to be missed. Ask your Legendary Journeys agent for details.
