After 4 days in Orlando this was a great find. We enjoyed this as much as any attraction we found in Orlando. This is a real value and I recommend that you consider contributing to the Lighthouse Foundation to preserve this jewel. My wife loves lighthouses and this is her favorite so far. So much history, so much to see..

This is my favorite spot to stay while in Daytona area. It's not very populated and you will have to stay in a condo or rent a house. There are a couple of restaurants in ponce inlet but if you drive a few miles back up to Daytona Beach area you can get all the hustle and bustle you want.... More

We had bought our tickets and just went into the lighthouse when we had to leave due to a storm blowing in. They have to shut the lighthouse down during storms.

One of the best kept lighthouse grounds and tour I've ever seen. A trip through time and a great view from the top.

Its a picture perfect lighthouse. Tall!!! TIP: Take a bottle of water cause you'll need it when you reach the top. Over 300 steps, under humid weather...(take a hand fan if possible) The view is breath taking the history is amazing and the museums are so well kept and so are the grounds. You really cant miss her red dress... More

The lighthouse has alot of history and climbing the 203 stairs to the top is sooo worth it. The climb actually wasn't as bad as I expected and once you get to the top the views are absolutely breathtaking. The wind was quite strong but so refreshing after climbing the stairs. I would love to take the sunset tours because... More

Lighthouse tour was great, romantic for sunset visit. The Ponce Inlet Marina Resturant was soooo good the food was delicious and the portions were BIG. Don't be fooled by the older décor and the view is beautiful

Quiet walking and just sitting on the stone jetty that goes out into the ocean and protects the inlet. Great lighthouse.

Go early in the morning before it gets hot. Very interesting to learn about the lighthouse! Be prepared to climb 203 stairs to get to the top, but a must see!

Beautiful! Very inexpensive to visit and well worth it! You can go all the way up in the lighthouse and see the houses that they used to live in
