  • We loved it. The views from the top were breathtaking. Every thing about the whole experience was great. The staff were all so nice, welcoming and very knowledgeable.
  • The tour was well worth it and no extra cost. All of the volunteers at the lighthouse were so helpful and their respect and admiration for the history evident. Gift shop is great too. Hope to go back again.
  • Best memories for my Grandson (10) and myself. It was his favorite thing about his trip to Florida. I enjoyed climbing up and making it to the top. Nice few from the walkway to the water. Great souvenir store. Everyone was very nice.
  • Rich in history. Well maintained. Knowledgeable volunteers. Great view from the top!
  • Very cool! Hard to climb but worth it. Not for families with small kids. We had to do it in shifts. A few of the exhibits were closed unfortunately. I recommend this if your in the area. Prices aren't too bad. $12 for 18+ and 6-12 are $6.
