An avid lighthouse viewer, we had to see this one while in the Keys!! And we were not disappointed! It is shorter than other I have been to but that just made the walk up and down easier:-) we got there at 9:30, hoping to beat the crowd, which we did, and upon arriving found out they have free admission to military personnel! Fantastic! Grounds were small, but well kept, neat little statues and museum, and lighthouse it self was clean and neat, with a great view from the top!! We got in and out with no other people coming or going, so I encourage you to go 1st thing in the morning!! The shop attendant was very courteous and the bathrooms were nice and clean. The ONLY complaint I had and voiced to the attendant was their lack of certificates stating we had climbed up to the top...not a big deal and he agreed he'd look into it, for the kids sake! Overall a great attraction!!
