I love lighthouses and this one has been one of my favorite so far. 105 steps and the view from the top is beautiful. The museum and the tour were very informative and it was only $10 a person.

Interesting place to visit, full of history. Docents are enthusiastic and very knowledgable. Winding steep stairway up to the top of the lighthouse.

Many lighthouses I've visited are not in a lush environment. This site is atop a mound and surrounded by beautiful grounds, trees, etc. Very picturesque. If you plan to go: be SURE to be there before 4 PM as that is the last tour and you won't be able to approach the lighthouse. Also, my best picture was from across... More

Climbing the lighthouse can be tiring however it is great exercise and the view at the top is amazing! This is well worth going to see. The history of the area and the beautiful scenery will draw you in. If you bring small children, you may end up carrying them part of the way up.

I was pleasantly surprised by the this tour. It's really well done with the historic buildings in addition to the lighthouse itself. The large tree near the lighthouse was my favorite.

Lots of walking but so worth the trip. Would recommend to lovers of lighthouses. We were there on a windy, cool day. My aunt could not climb steps and the wait was cold.

The Lighthouse was built just before the Civil War and sits next to a Coast Guard Station on the beautiful Jupiter Inlet. From the top of the Lighthouse visitors can see approximately ten miles out into the Atlantic Ocean. During WWII German subs sank many US tankers immediately off the shoreline where the Gulfstream flows.The Lighthouse was sandblasted and repainted... More
