The lighthouse view itself is awesome. They keep the lighthouse, the museum, and the grounds in excellent condition. My parents took me here when I was about 10, and returning 20 years later with my own daughter I found it to be in just as good of shape, if not better. I recommend bringing your own lunch and sitting at... More

The lighthouse was great and a lot of steps. The view is amazing and you can either spend a lot of time or have a quick visit. Very clean and value for money. It is a great visit if you are interested in lighthouses and history.

This is a great trip for all ages. We had ages 6 to 80's. Coupons available in local coupon books. Multiple buildings with lots to explore. Plan for a couple hours to see everything. Our family has been coming here for 30 some years and it still has a great interest. Some exhibits have a lot of text to read... More

We have been here several times prior to our May visit. We never get tired of seeing the lighthouse, touring all of the buildings, walking around the grounds and shopping in the gift shop. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Plan to spend some time here leaning the history of the area. The nature trail around the grounds is great,... More

Well restored and cared for historical site. Climbing the 203 steps to top of lighthouse worth the view - just awesome. Grounds offer other building historical information and artifacts. Very interesting and educational. Nice gift shop. Don't miss it. Well worth the cost of admission, on line discounts available.

The Ponce de Leon Lighthouse is not only the tallest lighthouse in Florida it is arguably the most beautiful. The bright orange colored lighthouse jumps out at you as you approach this beautiful fixture. If you climb to the top you will probably need to rest a bit before you make your way back down. It has a beautiful view... More

The view from the top of the lighthouse is spectacular.It is a little hot climbing the 207 stairs at this time of the year at lunchtime.The museum part of it was in air conditioning,lots of facts and cool stuff.It was well worth the small admission price.

This is a really nice attraction to see and it is only $5.00! They have a lighthouse you can climb up and the view is beautiful. It is a self guided tour where you learn about the history of the lighthouse while you tour the buildings on the grounds. You can easily spend 2 hours here and there is free... More
