Lake Wales Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 87 photos
Here in New Jersey, one of our favorite spots is the highest point of the New Jersey Pine Barrens...Apple Pie Hill...reaching 208 feet above sea level.
Here, Iron Mountain is the highest point in Florida...324 feet above sea level. Orange Groves lanscape the hills...like ancient olive groves in Italy.
And in thedistance, one can see the Bok Tower...part of the sanctuary for birds and native flora. The tower sits on the highest point, contains 60 carillon bells, which are played in concert twice a day...and can be heard and seen far away.
What are your beliefs in spirits and their interaction with our living plane? Here at Spook Hill, defy gravity, as your vehicle will roll uphill when in neutral...so they say. Didn't seem to work on our large dually truck...
- Pros:Contains beautiful views and gardens
- Cons:Wish I could have gardens without bugs...
Make sure you have good headwear...the sun is brutal throughout the gardens. Bring PLENTY of bug sparay...they love... more travel advice
The centerpiece of this wonderful sanctuary is the Bok Tower, standing 205 feet on top of the highest peninsular point... more travel advice
