This 165-foot-tall structure, Florida's first official lighthouse, was built from 1871 to 1874 to replace the old Spanish lighthouse that had stood at the inlet since 1565. The lightkeeper's cottage was destroyed by fire in 1970, but was meticulously restored to its Victorian splendor. The Victorian-style visitor center houses a museum explaining the history of the lighthouse and the area. You should be in good condition (children must be at least 44 inches tall) to climb the 219 steps to the top of the lighthouse. In 2007, the SyFy Network's popular show Ghost Hunters filmed an episode here and found that, after a thorough investigation, the lighthouse is, indeed, haunted!
