I've lived in Florida for 25 years and had never been to Bok Tower! My husband and I had a great time - great time of the year, lots of things still in bloom and the mansion was decorated for Christmas. We plan to go back and get the regular mansion tour that focuses more on the history, etc. Wish we had known there was a cafe -- the food looked a lot better than the McDonald's we had before arrival.

About This Deal

Because plants have long been jealous of our ability to live indoors, they attempt to infiltrate our finest mansions and universities by slowly climbing stony facades. With today's Groupon, take a trip to the place where floral strivers meet to plot against humanity: for $30, you get a one-year family membership (a $60 value) to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales. This Groupon is only valid for a new family membership.

While strolling through Bok Tower Gardens, nature buffs can treat their senses to the sights, sounds, and scents of the native wildlife and beautiful plants that lurk within the gardens. With a family membership, two adults and their immediately related kids or grandkids under age 18 get a full year of access. Designed by the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., Bok Tower Gardens is a National Historic Landmark that was thought into existence in 1921 by author and philanthropist Edward Bok. The garden features attractions such as the 205-foot, neo-Gothic singing tower, whose 60-bell carillon chimes the theme to Everybody Loves Raymond every half hour, and the historic Pinewood Estate, a Mediterranean-style mansion from the early 20th century.

Members also enjoy discounts at the Blue Palmetto Café and gift shop, reduced prices for separately ticketed events and Garden Campus programs, a subscription to the Garden Path newsletter, and special deals at affiliated attractions. Celebrate Take a Child Outside Week (September 24–30), which encourages kids to experience the beauty of nature and stay active, with a yearlong membership to a sprawling piece of Mother Nature.

About Bok Tower Gardens

Bok Tower Gardens, a National Historic Landmark, has enthralled visitors since 1929. When founder Edward W. Bok visited the area near Lake Wales, Florida, during winter retreats, he became enchanted with the beauty and vistas from Iron Mountain. From the hilltop, 298 feet above sea level, Bok marveled at serene sunsets and was inspired to preserve the area for future generations. Famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. was brought in to create a 50-acre garden, which has ferns, palms, oaks, and pines fashioning a lush backdrop with flowering foliage. At the center of the garden, the Singing Tower, designed by Milton B. Medary, features 60 carillon bells ranging in weight from 16 pounds to 12 tons, which play daily. Also at the heart of the garden is Pinewood Estate—a Mediterranean-style mansion built in the early 1930s by Charles Austin Buck, a Bethlehem Steel vice president. The estate is open to self-guided tours and decorated during the holiday season. Visitors can look forward to special events hosted at Bok Tower Gardens throughout the year, with refreshments available at the Blue Palmetto Café and souvenirs at the gift shop.
