Visitors make their way to Florida every year to visit many of this state’s working lighthouses. There are several lighthouses that are still standing in Florida because they have been well preserved to maintain Florida’s maritime history. Magnificent lighthouses include the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station, St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum, and the Cape Florida Lighthouse.
The Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station is only a short drive from Daytona Beach and it is open all year to visitors.
