So much fun to do. It was a struggle to climb to the top but the view is so worth it. Glad I did it. There is also a gift shop to buy neat stuff.

Lots of stairs so be prepared. Great view from top. Lots of historical building on the ground so visit if you don't want the work out.

It's a good climb to the top of the lighthouse, but worth it. The view is terrific. And across the street from the lighthouse is a waterfront restaurant that we like when we are in the area.

I have never been to a lighthouse before and have always wanted to go see one. This was beautiful, Very affordable, and what and incredible view from the top of this lighthouse. There are 203 stairs and it was such a fun day trip. Close to Daytona beach

I took my 3 kids to the lighthouse. We climbed all the stairs and the view from the top was breathtaking! we saw how the lights were constructed, where the lighthouse keeper lived. It was all very educational and interesting.

The Ponce Lighthouse is a fun place to visit. Be sure to bring the camera for great shots of Lighthouse and grounds. Then after climbing to the top you will get excellent shots of the sounding area. The whole family will really enjoy it!!
