    What a pleasant surprise! Went there purely based on the sign on I-4. It is great! Lots of information and history. Well worth the admission and drive.  more »

    We had a great self-guided tour of the lighthouse grounds, 3 keepers houses and all the exhibits. Well worth a stop for families or anyone. The grounds and buildings have been lovingly restored and ar...  more »

    I was visiting this lighthouse long before it became a major tourist attraction in Ponce Inlet, and I have seen it improve drastically over the years. It's great not seeing graffiti all over the walls and the yard well maintained. I was climbing those old steps in this wonderful lighthouse before anyone really knew it existed. 'Take a tour to the top' signs were posted all over Daytona Beach, though I do not know if they are now. This is my favorite place to go in all of Florida, and I enjoy knowing I believed the lighthouse was cool before the rest of the world did . - From Anchorage, Alaska

    Our trip up the lighthouse was a little rushed because of a storm approaching...we were the last ones up before it was closed due to weather, so we didn't get to spend much time at the top but it was still worth it and enjoyable. The museum part I would liked to have spent more time but the kids weren't as interested in the history as I was. It is very well restored and maintained. Worth the trip for sure.

    This is the tallest lighthouse in Florida. It's quite historic. There's an admission fee of, I believe $6, that you pay in the gift shop to actually get up close and personal to the lighthouse and other historic houses on the ground. We were content to visit the gift shop and just look at the lighthouse at a short distance. It was still worth the stop.

    Go visit! Climb the TALLEST lighthouse in Florida for a spectacular view of Daytona Beach, the jetty AND New Smyrna Beach!!! Well done restorations that aee definitely NOT run-down. A good variety of QUALITY exhibits included with admission... some documenting anchors, lighthouse keepers, lenses, radios and even "refugee" rafts. Worth a visit! The air conditioned lens exhibit is one of the most extensive collections I've ever seen. The climb up the lighthouse is high but there are several platforms to stop and rest on the way to the top.

    Great museum about the history of this lighthouse, lighthouses in general, and the history of the area. Wonderfully interesting display of different lights of varying sizes used in lighthouses. Family members reported beautiful views from the top of the lighthouse. Fun gift shop. Felt it was well worth the price of admission.
