Great experience. Get there early because it get's hot fast. We were the first group to tour that day and we were sweating. They either open at 9 or 10 am. It's by a draw bridge and people with small children have picnics and wade in the water. Lots of free parking. $10 a person to do the light house... More

Great view from the top of the lighthouse. Museum in a period wooden house with traditional porch and view over the river. Interesting outbuildings and an 80 year old banyan tree that has reached striking proportions.

My friend and I truly enjoyed this tour. We learned things we never knew about lighthouses. While we were at the top a space shuttle took off from Cape Canaveral taking a cappuccino machine from Italy to the space station. Fun! The guide was very informative. I would recommend a trip to the top for anyone who can climb the... More

The lighthouse is beautiful and well worth your time to visit and learn about the history of old Florida. Climb to the top for the best view in town. My Fiance took some amazing pictures from up there.

We were finally able to go to the top of the Lighthouse this visit. We had tried twice before but bad weather did not allow it. Knowledgeable guide at the top and amazing views from the top, worth every 34 + 105 steps to the top.

Loved listening to the history of the Lighthouse and inlet, my favorite parts would have to be the giant banyan tree and the spectacular view up top the lighthouse. Climbing up will give you a workout! I suggest waiting til it's high tide when you do the tour, so you can see the beautiful blue water from up top. Cute... More

Tour guide was fun yet full of knowledge. The big banyan tree was my favorite part, it's massive! If you're climbing to the top of the lighthouse, make sure you watch your footing up the stairs. The steps are narrow and steep.

Be ready to walk and climb and would recommend you go when it's not so hot. Lots of history and plenty of parking.
