“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

So glad we did the lighthouse on this trip. 88 stairs didn't sound like much, but I was huffing and puffing by the top. The view is worth the effort though.

“Good if you have never seen a lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The Key West lighthouse is not a tall as some othes in Florida, but if you have never been in one, its a good experience. The whole site takes about 30 minutes to see and the cost is $5 pp. If you are in the area, its worth the time.

“Pretty Cool View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The lighthouse was pretty fantastic and the view was amazing from the top. Only wish there would have been an actual goat taking care of the landscaping!

“Nice view of The very Green surrounding!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

A good landmark to visit And Walk up The 100 Stairs. An excellent view of Key West and it's lush Green. Also simple, but yet nice to Walk The Keepers House And watch The Movie On The past of The light House And Key West.

“I'm outta shape!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

It's a heck of a climb, but the view is worth it. If you're afraid of heights, its not bad going up. I panicked a bit coming down. The Lighthouse Keepers Quarters were pretty interesting. Interactive exhibits and roosters abound!
