“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This attraction doesn't take a long time to complete but you do need to be able to climb a very narrow spiral staircase but there isn't a better view in Key West still attached to the ground. The Light house has parking there isn't a lot of parking around so it's a great added bonus.

“Key West from on high”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We always like to tour lighthouses as they usually give you a great view. This one was no different giving superb views of Key West and the area. The grounds are a nice setting and with the view gives you a feel for where the sea used to reach. Museum exhibits aren't bad either.

“Nice”

Very nice climb to top, very nice views from top, not much people.... But tired of Disney style gift shops with overpriced souvenirs made in China

“Great View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I never pass up an opportunity to climb a lighthouse. There are so few available for climbing anymore. This one only has 88 steps, but steep, very narrow and of course winding. Passing others climbers coming down or going up was a challenge, but doable. I am afraid of heights, but at least go out the door. Great view of the ocean and what I could see of Key West by holding on and aiming my camera to both sides. I am so glad it is available.

“Great view of Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Worth visiting if only for the fantastic view of Key West. But be warned - the climb is not for everyone. The steps are small, steep, and winding and you have to be especially careful walking down from the top of the lighthouse. And be careful of passing others on the narrow steps. But the view is well worth the effort of the climb! Nice attraction to visit!
