“I've been a tourist living here for 35 years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I came her in 1977 and have not been able to leave. Beach, biking, hiking, birding, fishing, dancing, boating and surfing. What better to jump on your bike and head to the Jetty to see if surf is up or if they are biting.

Below is one such trip when I ran into a crew from Guiness Beer who had just inducted Bernie (Who works at NY Bagel in the Shores) into the Guiness book of World records for "surfing a 30 second wave whilst spinning a basketball".

“Fun afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Nice grounds and interesting history. Need to be physically fit to reach the top of the lighthouse. Stop at the Inlet bar for cocktails after your visit.

“Beautiful Lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

On our annual trips to Florida we always go to Ponce Inlet to see the beautiful red lighthouse and eat at the restaurant near the water. If you've never tried alligator bites, go ahead, they are especially good with the berry dip! Watch the many Floriday pelicans and herons come visit while you eat and of course fresh oysters are available any time. Give it a try!

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I went there with my 2 year child a couple days ago. The grounds were kept very clean and well manicured. The museums were clean. The lighthouse was pretty cool but with a 2 year old we didnt make it to the top :-/ but there was a play ground just outside the lighthouse ground which was cool. FYI 2 year old get in FREE!
