Stopped by the delightful Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse and Museum just south of Daytona Beach, Florida. It is much more than just a lighthouse. Tour the Museum and associated buildings and exhibits on the white picket-fence fenced-in grounds. There is a nice gift shop inside the Museum as well. Would be a great place for the family to visit... More

I had a blast at the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. It's a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, especially for the price - just $5.00 per person grants access to the grounds, lighthouse, and all the exhibits. The original keepers' houses and other buildings have been preserved, and each have rich displays focused on the history of Southeast Florida from the... More

Take a couple of hours to visit the lighthouse while you're in Daytona Beach. 207 steps to the top - you can do it! Interesting museum exhibits. Reasonable price.

Really enjoyed touring the light grounds and learning about lighthouses. great views from top and what a 1st rate renovation they have done on the lenses. Even my 15 year old son enjoyed it.

Beautiful grounds surround the lighthouse. Wonderful gift shop & Museum. The walk to the top of the lighthouse is worth it, if so inclined. The display of glass reflectors is awesome. Good educational trip.

This is a charming and unique spot to visit when you want to get away from the sand and crowds. Get there early, because it closed by 7:00 on a week day.

Lots to see here on the grounds of the Ponce Inlet lighthouse. From the residence buildings, to the display of actual signal lights, culminating with a climb to the top of the light house itself, everything was very well kept and easy to access. Lots of history if you take the time to read and digest the information. Definitely recommend... More

203 steps to the top of the lighthouse! The grounds around the lighthouse are house type structures that are little museums. If you make it to the top of the light house, the views are AMAZING! But bring your camera, you'll want to capture the view.

This is a very nice lighthouse and grounds. Unfortunately we did not have a lot of time to absorb everything they had to offer there. Even a quick climb to the top and a peek in the lens building were worth the $5 admission. Its a long climb to the top and a narrow staircase with people going in both... More

This is the second lighthouse ever that we climbed (after Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City, NJ, also highly recommended) and again a very enjoyable experience. I love lighthouses and this one has been meticulously restored. Apart from the lighthouse itself, there are also plenty of surrounding buildings (such as the the keeper’s residence) that you can visit and that tell... More
