Worth the stop/detour Not too pricey. Not for the faint of heart. If you do not like heights, do not go. I have a daughter afraid of heights. She did not attempt. I have another daughter who is not afraid of heights and after three flights she turned around. My wife and oldest daughter went up separately. Spectacular view.

Tucked in ancient oak trees sits this most beautiful and historic light house. To enjoy it at night, book a concert at the St. Augustine amphitheater. While sitting under the oak trees, listening to your favorite artist (James Taylor!), the circular lights from the light house, show you the way to bliss.

If you're only going to do one lighthouse in your life, I'd recommend this one, mostly because when you're climbing to the top, there is a railing on each side of the stairwell instead of just one. The steps are also wider and less steep - so yes, there are more steps but it makes for an easier climb. There's an open ended tour around the grounds which was interesting and informative as well as museum exhibits around the property.

I loved this lighthouse - and - area... I would give 5$, but I thought the &12 fee was a tad speedy given there was not much else but the lighthouse ... In any case - fun and beautiful!! ❤️ a must see!

Really cool. Don't buy a ticket for yourself or any children afraid of heights. Beautiful view. Cool little gift shop as well.

Great fun at reasonable price, and parking is free and easy. Really enjoyed the history, and the volunteers were very friendly and gave us more information than was available in the buildings. There is also a side part that very few went to, that exhibits boat building and actual artifact cleaning.
