Backroads To Bok Tower

Scenic Ride 04

There are quicker ways to get from Tampa to Lake Wales, but we believe scenic is always better. This route will give you some curvy roads, some country roads and a few stretches of highway. The destination, Bok Tower Gardens, is just as scenic as the ride with colorful gardens and a reflection pool surrounding a majestic 205-foot tall carillon tower with 60 bells. It's been a Florida landmark since 1929.
