Great Little Side Stop

I would recommend stopping on your way to Bok Tower Gardens. We took a gaggle of small kids and they loved trying the orange juice and seeing the history.

This is a great place to really understand Florida's Natural ownership concept! Great variety of samples available. It's all we buy now.

I recommend it as a place to visit in Lake Wales. I was hoping for a plant tour, and they might have those, but it was more of a local monument to the Lake Wales area. Very interesting museum part, but it didn't take as long to finish as I had thought it would. I bought several little things for... More

Wonderful place to visit - even as a local. FREE! Super friendly inside and free juices to try! They have lots of information about the history of the company, as well as horticulture, nature, artifacts, Florida hurricanes, etc. You can really spend a long time here taking in all the information - very much like a museum! There's also a... More

Most informative visitor center with everything imaginable made from oranges for purchase including soaps, hand lotions, air freshners, candies, jams, jellies, teas, sauces, dressings, popcorn and of course their juices! The film from The Grove to the Glass does an excellent job explaining how they use every aspect of the orange. Free samples of their juices. They even have an... More

A very small building but very informative about oranges and how they get to your table! Great for a short Family stop off. Wish they sold all the juices here..

I wouldn't go out of your way to go here! You do get a sample of orange juice and there are a few displays with Florida Natural's history, but there really isn't much here.

Fun facts type of place. Very cute gift shop. There is a video you can watch all about the land, the trees, the process. Only wish they let you pick an orange.

This visitor center that stands next to a small orange grove and serves complimentary samples of citrus juice. It also features a small museum with several films and interactive exhibits that explain the orange growing process. Our entire family found it quite interesting and will definitely return next time we are in the area. If you watch all the films... More
