The light house was a very nice site to visit but the trip to the top is a very long one and a work out for any one so make sure you have your walking shoes on. Nice trip for a cheap family outing. Nothing super special but good trip all in all

We were taken here by friends and it was a wonderful experience. You have the option of climbing to the top of the lighthouse (200 steps) and it affords a wonderful view of the area. For more information on the light, there is an adjoining lens exhibit building with a collection of lenses. If you are not into the technology,... More

My two granddaughters loved the lighthouse and museum. They went all the way to the top, saw the Huge lights that are on display. Very educational.

I did not want to climb the 203 stairs to the top of lighthouse, but so glad I did. The views were amazing. It is Florida's tallest lighthouse. There are also several buildings on the property to walk thru to learn about lightkeepers' lives. Allow 2 hours. The gift shop had much to offer and the short video was informative.... More

The staff is very friendly, the gift shop is well stocked and will appeal to many different tastes. The short film that you... More

Always enjoy visiting the lighthouse! An affordable and interesting stop for anyone visiting the area! They have a gift shop that is worth the trip on its own! Great inventory and great prices! The staff is always helpful and friendly. If you can make it to one of the full moon nights, do NOT miss the opportunity!
