Ponce de Leon Light house on the South end of the barrier islands off of Daytona Beach and Port Orange is a very beautiful light house. It is the tallest light house in the state of Florida. During summer time it is open from 10:00 AM and until 9:00 PM (visitors allowed until 8:00 PM). Since we saw it after closing time last night we came early (9:45 AM) and bought the tickets (adults $5:00 and kids $1:50).
We went up the red light house (all the 175 feet of it). The day was very clear with very little clouds. We could see all the way to the north Daytona Beach and beyond. On the South we could see past several miles.
We went around the top deck and watched the light house light mechanism rotate (with lights off, of course). Took some pictures and saw the surrounding area until 11:00 AM.
