I love lighthouses. I have seen many lighthouses in the past and love to either take picture of them from the common grounds or walk to the top to see the view. I should have done my homework on this one. I am a frequent visitor to the Ft. Lauderdale area and always wanted to take a trip up to... More

We stopped at the lighthouse on the way to a cruise in fort Lauderdale. The guide was very good, and took her time explaining about the trees and flowers along the way, It was at our pace and never felt rushed. My husband did have to pay, even though he could not climb the lighthouse due to medical reasons, but... More

Went there recently (Sept.) and have wanted to go on top of that lighthouse for a long time. Paid the $18 for 2 people and after being shown some buildings where the guide points out " the items inside aren't the actual original contents but items that were donated to make it look like they were from that time period"...

The Jupiter Lighthouse is about an hour from where we live. So we figured we'd check it out. It is on a Coast Guard base right on the water. Gorgeous setting. We paid $9 each for admission and joined the tour. The tour lasted about an hour. The guide who brought us along the walk to get to the base... More

We loved the visit there, you can climb lighthouse only if you get a tour. We visited it on Labor Day weekend and paid for admission $5! Great price! The stuff and the guide were very friendly. We enjoyed the view and the nature and it was very pleasant just to be there. The tour is about 45 minutes long... More

This was a very nice tour for being a "lighthouse tour". The location setting was beautiful and the banyon tree was breathtaking.

If you live in S Florida or are traveling to the area and have not been here yet what are you waiting for? This is not only a beautiful spot with amazing views, but the history and educational experience you walk away with is amazing. There is a 45 minute tour lead by very well trained guides and the grounds... More

The color of the lighthouse is deep in my memory. The sight of it, is majestic and haunting .Its an amazing view once you get to the top! Climb the steps, see a jaw dropping tree, wander through an old world house and hear about the history. We heard great lighthouse stories, had some delicious fudge and spent time browsing... More
