  • This was a fun place to visit on our trip to St. Augustine. The view from the top of the lighthouse was amazing and getting to see the lighthouse keeper's house and everything was great. The way the historical facts/information and artifacts are set up is very well done. I loved getting to see the lab and things they have found/worked with there. The fact that they offer ghost tours is pretty amazing too. Definitely worth the visit!
  • My friends and I stopped here on our way to the town of St. Augustine and I absolutely loved this adventure! It was very informative going up the lighthouse and the views once we got up there were amazing. There's 219 (i believe) steps but they have benches every few flights for those that need rest. The different buildings on the property were very interesting and a lot of interactive games for kids. The nature walk was just okay, I would skip it unless you really want to be one with nature. It was very clean and some parts were very modern.
