I have been going to this lighthouse ever since it was opened to the public. The improvements never stop for the lighthouse or the area around it. The tours are informative, and after a short walk past a tiki hut and a couple of buildings, you end up on a huge deck under a gigantic banyan tree that leads you... More

Every time we are in south Florida we visit the Jupiter inlet. The views are beautiful, especially at sunset, but be cautious swimming because of potential rip tides. Great free activity for anyone (solo, couples, families)

A few days on the beach and a bit sunburned and we were looking for a diversion. The lighthouse has a nice small museum with a good educational history of the area. The tour takes you through a locked gate onto Coast Guard property past many allergic bushes. The walk to the top is not for the out=of-shape but I... More

Can you make it to the top!? Fun place to visit when in the Daytona area. Kids will enjoy making the climb to the top.

I´ve never been to a lighthouse before and I found this visit very interesting. The museum is very nice, with a very interesting movie that shows the history of the lighthouse. Our guide was very good, very knowledgeable. Grounds are very nice and climbing the lighthouse was very exciting, with great views. Before going make sure there´s not a storm... More

A beautiful piece of history. Enjoy the walk, climb (if you choose) and some education. The museum and giftshop are lovely. The employees are very knowledgable.

I've been twice and two separate experiences. One was great. We toured the lighthouse, some surrounding Coast Guard station houses of some type, a cracker home (which I really enjoyed), and the museum. On a second visit, we just toured the lighthouse, and I was kind of bummed that we couldn't see the cracker home and other sights again. The... More

Had fun with a bunch of kids touring the historic lighthouse & Museum. Great option for a day when you are tired of the beach or sunburned!
