For the past seven years, Readers of this site have been able to enjoy weekly photo-reports covering all of Orlando's major theme parks and attractions. While those amazing places are undoubtedly still the focus of our site, there are many other wonderful attractions located around the Central Florida area that may not be as popular but that are equally as impressive and definitely worth visiting.
Today we'll accompany you inside Bok Tower Gardens, located in Polk County.


Guests can either purchase tickets to the gardens online or at the entrance of the parking lot (parking is free, so the shelter acts as a drive-through ticket booth). This is the actual entrance to the gardens:
