The tallest lighthouse in Florida. The staff was super friendly. The facilities were very informative. The top of the lighthouse is windy. Be prepared to hang on to your hat! Fantastic place for solo or family outing.

Our granddaughter loved climbing the light house. The history was interesting. Be sure to see the video for the most information.

This was a cool blast from the past. Also, if you are interested in a birds eye view, you should definitely go against your instincts and climb to the top! But know, the very top stairs are steep! Very interesting WWII items as well.

You won't want to miss this if you enjoy lighthouses... I'm a bit of a lighthouse chaser and this one was not a disappointment!

The grounds were so pretty. The lighthouse a beauty. If you can climb the 220 stairs up to the top, it's a must do. Beautiful view. Great history behind it and the lens.

Very nice place to visit. Free parking and the cost to enter is $7. You can climb all 209 stairs. The grounds are well kept and there is a small gift center. It is off the beaten path and worth the drive.

What a view from atop Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. Be sure to walk out to the jetty and take in the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. It's quite a treat. There is a nice camping area, too. It's such a great area for families to visit....the sun, surf, sand, and breathtaking scenery with inspire and rejuvenate your spirit!

Only $7 and a decent amount of information. Free parking. You could spend at least an hour or two here. You can go to the top of the lighthouse which is pretty cool. It's about 200 steps so take it slow. Watch our for kids. Be careful going back down the steps as well. Parts are narrow and the steps... More

The museum is very interesting and educational. Climbing the stairs is challenging, but the view from the top is awesome. Grandchildren love to visit the lighthouse and climb to the top.
