History buffs will appreciate Clermont's Presidents Hall of Fame museum. The 60-foot-by-20-foot White House replica - boasting a full-scale depiction of the actual interior of the home plus wax figures of all the presidents and two first ladies - took more than 30 years to complete, and amassed more than 600,000 construction hours! It's the perfect backdrop for your next family photo.
Adjacent to the Presidents Hall of Fame museum is the Florida Citrus Tower, sitting at 226-foot-tall, it is the highest observation point in Florida.
