The grounds and buildings at this place are well-maintained. Friendly and helpful employees in the gift shop where tickets are purchased to enter the grounds. Though we have been here a few times over the years, it is the first time we have taken our time to see everything on the grounds and climb to the top of the lighthouse.... More

This is a beautiful lighthouse with 203 steps to the top to reveal great views everywhere you look. There is a lovely store which you go in to pay admission and get access to the grounds. The hike up to the top of the lighthouse was a bit of a workout but it was well worth the effort. It's only... More

This lighthouse museum was a great stop for our family of five. The history of the buildings was very interesting for the adults and the lighthouse views were gorgeous once at the top. Anyone with claustrophobia may want to wait at the bottom; It gets very hot in the winding stairwell and the walls do seem to be closing in...... More

Well worth the stair climb. Awesome views. This made my second trip to Daytona in 4 months. And 2nd time to the lighthouse. You pay 6.95 to in it.

This lighthouse climb has steps that are wide. There is a right hand railing but none on the left hand side. The stairs get narrow and steep at the very end when you climb to the section near the viewing area. What sets this one apart is that as you are climbing there are sections- every couple of flights later-... More

What a beautiful view! There are plenty of rest stops on the way up the 203 steps. (I think that's what they said, the blood left my brain to supply oxygen to my feet!) but it's worth the climb. You may want to come early in the day or on a cool day as it is not air conditioned.

My friend and I loved it here. The grounds and light house are really well taken care of. Be prepared to climb there is 203 stairs to the top of the light house and that may not sound like a lot but it sure feels like a lot.

What an adventure. Historical facts, many displays so nicely done so we could see how it was "back in the day" and what a beautiful view from the top...all for only $6.95 pp.....so worth it. It is a hike up, so please use caution (my legs feel it today). My husband didn't want to go because he thought it was... More

We've been to several lighthouses across the country and this has to be the best! What a charming lighthouse to climb. Great views!! And, when you get back down, there's a lot more to see and do. Everything is so well maintained, and the staff is very helpful. Make sure to visit the gift shop. Lots of wonderful gifts and... More

Lighthouse at Ponce Inlet is very well maintained and beautiful. The grounds include original home and buildings for staff. There is a gift shop to help you recall your visit. Don't miss the opportunity to visit this beautiful place with your family and friends.
