If you are in the area you need to plan a visit. There's limited ventilation in lighthouse so visting mornings or evenings are best. They prefer you do not wear flip flops because falling risks. There's a lot of narrow steps, however there are plenty...More

Enjoyed 2.5 hours exploring the lighthouse, surrounding historic exhibits, lighthouse lense house, and veteran's park and walking trail next to lighthouse parking lot. The site is family friendly and around 7 dollar entrance fee for adults. Definitely highlight in ponce inlet area.
