Bok Towers

Hubby and I had the opportunity to get free museum tickets from The Smithsonian Magazine (see previous post). We chose Bok Towers.
We had been there a few years ago but I was ready to see it again. We had a wonderful time and my hubby was so sweet and patient as I took tons of pictures. I couldn’t believe all the different birds we saw, including a few hummingbirds. And the tower is an amazing sight to see.

One of the many benches they have for you to sit, relax, and listen to the bells.

These lily pads are HUGE! They are probably 6 ft across!

At Bok you can explore the beautiful landscaped gardens. You can also discover the history of Edward W. Bok and the building of his 205 foot Singing Tower and tour the historic Pinewood Estate mansion to catch a glimpse of the luxurious lifestyle of the 1930s.
Tucked away throughout the Gardens the curious will find secret garden paths, picture rubbing posts as well as three geocache locations!
Bok Tower Gardens located between Tampa and Orlando.
