We were down in Ormond Beach Fl. this March for spring break . We have 4 small kids (9m/21m/4 and 10). The lady where we were staying told us about this lighthouse....so being to many lighthouses we all really wanted to go and see this one. When we got there we parked in the lot ,the scenery was amazing !!... More

We loved walking to the top of the Lighthouse. Lots of great history to see in the Lighthouse keeper house and buildings and all for only $5 each ! We had a fun visit for a great value !

We took this attraction in as a time killer between meals and soaking up rays on the beach. I figured it was going to be lame. It was actually very informative and historical. The staff seemed very eager to tell you information. They seemed proud of their job and where they worked. The prices are extremely low. You almost feel... More

There is a lot of interesting history displayed throughout this place. Plan a lot of time to read all the information and take it all in. I would advise to go to the lighthouse first because they will close it if it starts thundering. Very beautiful, peaceful place. Highly recommend visiting!

Just a short drive from Daytona Beach, the lighthouse is a great history lesson. The lighthouse is a steep climb and is a bit exhausting. Take some time to stop and read the plaques on the walls. Once at the top, the view is outstanding and worth the climb. There are several other buildings on site that give you the... More

In addition to the lighthouse, the exhibits and keepers houses are an interesting visit. We visited with kids and grandkids, and everybody climbed the 200+ steps to the top of the lighthouse. The admission was not expensive ($5 adults, $2 for children), and the gift shop had inexpensive stuff for grandkids. There are restrooms on the grounds, and there are... More

Wanted to do something different at Daytona, found this on Trip Advisor, what a little gem. Beautiful location, worth climbing the steps (slowly!) for a great all round view. Afterwards drove on to the beach, had a drink and a paddle in the warm Atlantic. Bliss.

When living in FL for a short time, I traveled to the Ponce Inlet Light House where I was immediately impressed with its cheap fee, beautiful view, and location in comparison to the water. Walking up the many, many stairs of the light house didn't feel tiring because I was fixated on the beauty of the walls, staircase, and the... More

This was our "historical surprise" of the trip. The lighthouse park and grounds are immaculate. Even though a busy place, staff was patient and attentive when needed. Climbing the lighthouse is not for the weak, but worth the climb - you feel every one of the 203 steps. The views from the walk around are of course amazing. You see... More

As we were leaving Daytona Beach, I wanted to go by the Lighthouse to see if before we left. Since it was only $5 to get in and walk up to top of lighthouse and see all the museum houses, we did it. I told them I had a printed coupon and left it in my car, and they gave... More
