We always try to take our visitors to the Lighthouse. The view from the top is fantastic. When we go to the lighthouse, we always browse the wonderful gift shop that is located here. All of our visitors who we have taken here have enjoyed this location.

The lighthouse is beautiful. The climb is a little tough if your not use to climbing stairs. But the view was worth it. Breathtaking.

Since my last visit many years ago, they have continued to take very good care of this lighthouse. If you pay to go in, you can climb to the top of the lighthouse. During my last visit, I don't recall them having a nice park with playground adjacent to the lighthouse. My daughter appreciated the opportunity to play on their... More

I recently visited The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. It was a lot of stairs but the view made up for all the work. 175 feet high the view is Awesome. If you have an extra hour this is a great stop.

Great price and a great way to kill an hour or so. $6.95 per person and you see the lighthouse and the grounds would have been nice if there was a guided tour but there's a lot to explore on your own.

We almost didn't go any further than the gift shop. I'm so glad we did. The history of the lighthouse and lighthouses in general was very interesting. The actual lighthouse was more of a mental challenge for us than a physical challenge.

We visited the site on a clear sunny warm April day which provided great views from the top of the lighthouse. Go slow when taking the climb up and down as it is more than one is used to and you will meet up with people of all ages going up and down. There is a gift shop at the... More

I visited Florida with my daughter in August and as it was just the two of us I wanted to find some really memorable things to see and do and the Ponce inlet lighthouse was one of these. I booked with a really helpful lady called Karen over the phone. The lighthouse climb isn't for the faint hearted it's a... More

Loved our visit to the lighthouse museum! The keepers' houses, the lighthouse, and the grounds were fun and informative to visit. We also liked walking around Ponce Inlet and looking at houses and small random graveyards.
