A relative bargain in today's world to spend a couple of hours, see & experience some history and find out about Daytona Beach. You can spend a bit of time there especially if you walk up the lighthouse where the view is outstanding. There are...More

The lighthouse is a cost of about $9.00 dollars and is worth it to see everything it has to offer. There is a beach area within walking and offers a great view.
