This place is fun. It's a hidden little gem in a neighborhood atmosphere. When driving there it felt like we were going the wrong way. It's a self guided walking tour that provides some great history of the Lighthouse when it was in use and...More

This lighthouse is a little scary once you get to the top. It didn't seem windy on the ground, but get 175' up and it's a different story! It felt like you could fly away like a kite. This is the tallest lighthouse in Florida...More

This lighthouse and grounds are beautifully restored and maintained. It was fun and educational. The walk to the top of the light house is steep but the view is amazing!!

Yes, no extra charges either. Upper and lower lots with room for every type of vehicle from motorcycles to buses.
Are kids allowed to go up the tower? Is there a height restriction? My kids are 3 and 8. Thank you!
