Capture the holiday spirit and celebrate “family traditions” at Bok Tower Gardens. Tour the magnificent 20-room, Mediterranean-style Pinewood Estate beautifully decorated for the holidays. Each room has a different focus, but they all coordinate with the master theme as the designers and volunteers concentrate on touches to bring out that special feeling we all get at Christmastime. Experience the luxurious lifestyle of C. Austin Buck, an early 20th century industrialist and original owner of the estate.
Stroll through the gardens and view one of the greatest achievements of noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. This lush garden is filled with many sensory delights for personal renewal and enjoyment.
A shuttle runs between the gardens and the mansion and historians are in every room of the mansion.
Enjoy recitals from the 60-bell carillon as it’s music fills the sanctuary daily.
