You can't be a good lighthouse trek for an hours worth of entertainment. This place has great views and is always very well-kept.

I have never seen such a beautiful lighthouse until I went to Ponce de Leon Lighthouse. It was personally breathtaking for me. We went into the lighthouse and was amazed by it all. The outside area is kept so prestine, the flowers were in full bloom. We bought a few items from the gift shop and found the prices to... More

It's updated and painted. Tours and shops and eateries are plenty. Want to try the top of the lighthouse on a full moon.

The climb is a challenge, but well worth it when you get to the top. The surrounding buildings give you an idea of the history involved.

The area is very beautiful. The climb to the top of the lighthouse is worth the view at the top. The building with the beacons on display is a must. So pretty.

Stop and see the sight. Lots of history! Take the tour and make sure to have your camera with you! By the way... The light house is not in the park. Follow the signs nearby.

There was quite a bit to see in the lighthouse museum. Excellent display of large lighthouse lenses unlike any I had seen before. The buildings were full of historical artifacts. We watched the orientation video and I recommend it because it showed photos of the families that lived there.

The lighthouse at Ponce Inlet Florida is located a few blocks from the ocean and the river. The gift shop offers many items describing the rich history of the area. The view from the top of the lighthouse is breathtaking. Nice riverfront restaurants are located nearby. Inexpensive for a family trip.

This was a neat addition for those whole love a little history every vacation they go on. We even were able to walk to the VERY top of the lighthouse and see all of Daytona Beach Shores.
