Near Daytona, Ponce Inlet Light Station is over 120 years old and on a clear day you can see Kennedy. It is Florida’s tallest lighthouse, standing at 175 feet high. There are 203 steps to the top of the Lighthouse and it is advisable to dress appropriately e.g. no skirts, sensible shoes (closed toe with grip e.g. trainers). It’s a great place to visit, fantastic view and only $5 entry for an adult – take a walk out onto the gallery deck and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze as you enjoy the Florida coast view.
Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse Preservation Association also offers two unique special interest tours:
