Lighthouse Tour

We are both kind of partial to lighthouses and this one did not disappoint us. It was very informative and the grounds are beautiful too.

Once you climb the 402 stairs it is a breath taking view one you will never forget. The historical value is wonderful and only 5.00 to enjoy a great bargain.

I like the quaintness of this lighthouse and the community that surrounds it. We enjoyed eating lunch at the Hidden Treasures Sand Bar too!

Drive south from Daytona Beach until you can't drive anymore and you will find the lighthouse. Nice little attraction to wander about and spend some time. Climb up to the lighthouse, or not. Browse the grounds. Wander in the gift shop and gawk at the goodies for sale. (I purchased some lovely earrings and a tin gecko!) Relax in the... More

Go all the way to the top, 200+ steps, but what a view. This is a well maintained, historical lighthouse, with a pleasant staff, a museum and gift shop. I highly recommend a stop by if you're in the area.

Enjoyed this attraction since it was not only a work out but it offered an education experience as well. It was fairly priced at $5 per adult but there is a 10% off coupon you can get from a discount book in the vending room near the parking lot. There is a gift shop for mementos. You get a glimpse...

Average light house. I don't agree with any water allowed in the lighthouse. It's Florida and very hot and very small place with a lot of people.

This is an old lighthouse in Daytona and it is in excellent shape. Getting here was a little slow, roads at 35-25 MPH so don’t expect to get there and back in an hour. They have a self guided tour and you can climb up the lighthouse. There is a nice park adjacent the lighthouse and several other museums and... More

we went in the morning and climbed the lighthouse first thing. 203 steps which is tougher than you think so be rested. It was worth the effort as you get a great view and a nice breeze. For twice the price it would have been worth it!!!
