When in Central Florida, we all think of the theme parks. But, honestly, I HIGHLY recommend getting off the beaten path for a day to experience something a little more, well, Florida!
And The Showcase of Citrus, Florida’s Fresh Air Attraction® offers just that.
And a WHOLE lot more!
Start off with a property full of fun things to see and do, such as gem mining and watching the gators swim around the beautiful waterfront. Lots of photo opportunities abound with old tractors, a replica of the Southernmost Point Buoy in Key West, and even a giant shark.
Inside the Old Country Store, you can peruse everything from kitschy souvenirs; to local crafts, soaps, and more; to at least a dozen different kinds of unique local honey.
They have an ice cream counter, boasting their world famous Orange Creamsicles.
You will also find a full bar for the grown-ups; a cold brew coffee bar; and an acai smoothie bowl cafe.
But, wait, it gets better!
At this U-Pick Citrus Farm, you MUST grab a bag and head to the orchards for an incredible agricultural experience, as the kids pick fresh oranges straight from the trees!
Along the way, or when you are done picking, be sure to Feed the Farm Animals!
And, the best experience of all…
Wait for it….
Showcase of Citrus offers Safari Swamp Monster Truck Rides through their extensive acreage of orange groves, animal enclosures, and true Florida swamplands!
You can see domestic, exotic, and wild animals around every corner, as you bounce along in a behemoth open-air monster truck!
If you’ve been looking for that WOW item for your Florida itinerary, definitely check out Showcase of Citrus in Clermont, just outside of Orlando and the theme park areas.
Orange you glad you found this post?
You will be!
Because we spent the entire day here, and took so many photos, I’m breaking our experience down into multiple albums.
