This is a beautiful light house. The grounds are well kept. They allow you to take pictures even if you do not go on the tour. The store was very informative and the prices were reasonable.

Our favorite lighthouse to visit while in the Daytona Beach area. The outdoor museums are informative and thankfully air conditioned. The lighthouse itself is one of the best that i personally have walked. The view is terrific. The gift shop is nice, but some items are very over priced.

Ponce de Leon Lighthouse is a great place to go when you want to save a bit of money, yet let the kids run them,selves into the ground. They have beach areas, fishing areas, overland boardwalks, nature trails and all kinds of picnic type amenities.

had to go through the gift shop and pay just to get on the grounds. Thought it was a little too commercialized for such an important historical landmark.

Plenty of parking, a nice gift shop with a variety of items. Tallest lighthouse is scary for those not looking forward to over 200 steps however this lighthouse gives you a break about every 30 or 40 steps. Wall 1/2 way around it flat then climb steps the other half so step haters you can do this. If it's a... More

I can't go to a town with a light house without making a visit. I was here in 2009 but my fried traveling with me had never seen this lighthouse so we made the trip. Very impressive. Knowing the history makes the trip a lot better. There is also a gift shop on grounds to get nice souvenirs. If in... More
