Beautiful lighthouse, must see! My husband and I were married at Jupiter Lighthouse and since we were in town for our anniversary celebration we made a trip over to the Lighthouse.

While visiting St. Augustine, you don't want to miss visiting the lighthouse and museum. The view from the top of the lighthouse is spectacular and there are lots of interesting exhibits and information in the museum.

Highly recommend the ghost tour. It is outstanding whether you're a believe, skeptic or an undecided like myself. After a brief tour, the guide gives brave souls the opportunity to scale the lighthouse in near complete darkness; armed only with an EMF detector and your clean underwear. I traversed the 219 stairs reaching top and dare I say asking a... More

I got engaged at the top of this lighthouse. The climb to the top will burn calories from dinner! Once you get to the top the view is pretty amazing.

Very interesting and a must do well worth the climb. There are landings that you can rest and take a breather on...which I was grateful for since I was not feeling well when we visited. Stairs are slotted so a little unnerving for my daughter's but they enjoyed it.

A really nicely preserved historic lighthouse and lighthouse keepers home. Very good value in a rustic beachside setting. Surprising considering the tourist traps along the way.

My boyfriend and I visited the lighthouse and keeper's house as part of our weekend in St. Augustine. We were not disappointed. The view from the top was beautiful, and the small nature trails were enjoyable as well. It is a fairly inexpensive attraction and we had a great time.
