We loved it. My husband was afraid of heights so he did not make it up. There are quite a few stairs. The view is nice once you make it to top!

This is a really nice and well maintained lighthouse. The gift shop is a great place to pick up t-shirts and hats. There is a great little park near the Lighthouse that my kids love.

A small park with a war memorial. very pleasant to sit in, cheeky squirrels are everywhere!!!! It is very quiet and peaceful and they have a small play area for children and picnic tables. Somewhere nice to eat your lunch after you have visited the lighthouse.

This is truly one of the best beaches I've ever visited. I can spend an entire day here. Check out the Jetty while there.

The lighthouse area is beautifully maintained, with a nice gift shop and interesting historical buildings detailing the background of the site. The lighthouse itself is lovely; but due to scattered showers and thunderstorms in the area, we were not permitted to enter it or climb up.

I have never gone up to a lighthouse. It was a well worth exercise. The views of Ponce inlet are awesome. The little houses (museums) surrounding the lighthouse were indeed interesting. Perfect visit to include after going to the marine biology aquarium

The climb to top of lighthouse is a workout but worth it. The view from top is amazing! We enjoyed all of the visit. I liked the history of it all.

We are a family of history buffs, but we found the lighthouse exhibits to be average. The building housing a few different old lighthouse lenses was interesting, but the other exhibits failed to grab our attention. The nature trail is small with little to see. Climbing the lighthouse probably provides a fantastic view, but that didn't really appeal to us.... More

Nice park, good surrounding areas, beautifully landscaped grass, and an awesome lighthouse. After the climb, go to the gift shop and buy an "I survived PILH" t-shirt.

I've been in at least a dozen lighthouses in my life, and this is one of the tallest I've climbed at 175 feet. The view is wonderful from the top. The park is packed with history and I would recommend a minimum of one hour to tour the buildings. Adult entry was a very reasonable $5. Parking was a bit... More
