This was just a photo stop as far as I could tell. There was a nice circular drive to get off the highway, and exit out again safely. I am a lighthouse lover, and enjoy taking pictures, climbing to the top and sleeping in those which have become beacon & breakfast facilities. This shape of lighthouse is new to me,... More

We stop by happenstance on a Thursday, when the lighthouse is open to the public. We chatted with the pleasant docent who kindly opened the lighthouse door for us. 123 steps later a beautiful view of the sea. The lighthouse was a 'kit' from the 1800's. Fun stop on the Forgotten Coast. Nice little museum inside the house at its... More

Very nice volunteers. Gave us a pseudo-tour even though they were closed. Great historical info and lantern fest sounds like fun.

My husband and I like lighthouses and often make my vacation plans around visiting area lighthouses. This one is a nice example of the more modern ones built in Florida with and external structure supporting the core spiral staircase. It has a new paint job since the photo was taken. The history room has a wonderful depiction of the life... More

This lighthouse has a sweet small museum beside it. We found the museum interesting. A film shows some of the history. There are bathrooms in the museum. A very nice stop.

No one was ever there, so we did play on the playground, but the hours of operation are so limited that we didn't go inside or up the lighthouse.

This was a nice quiet spot, tucked away on the bay. We made a special stop to take a few pictures, stretch our legs and enjoy the surroundings

I guess it was ok. The entrance is really hard to see. Th Museum and gift shop was closed when I was there. The wooden boat that was there had burnt and they hadn't started rebuilding yet. I know it wasn't anyone's fault lol I just wished I could have seen it
