If you’ve been driving I-95 or US 1 for awhile and find yourself near Daytona Beach…and you need to stretch your legs… why not climb a lighthouse? Ponce de Leon Lighthouse in Ponce Inlet is the tallest lighthouse in Florida towering 188 feet. That’s 203 steps (ground floor to gallery deck) for those breaking in new walking shoes. 😉

The lighthouse and museum grounds are open year-round and admission is only $5 per person. Driving directions and additional information about this beautiful lighthouse can be found at their website.

PLEASE NOTE: This lighthouse is located at the end of Ponce Inlet and parking at the lighthouse is limited to smaller vehicles. No over-sized parking is available.

If you find yourself near Ocala, Florida, you should make a visit to the Silver River State Park. The park is just a mile south of Silver Springs and has a variety to offer – from hiking trails leading to the river, camping and picnic areas, to the Silver River Museum and Florida pioneer village. Entrance fee for vehicles is $6 (max of 8 people) and museum admission is $2 (the museum is only open weekends and holidays).
