Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse
The Ponce de Leon Inlet lighthouse just South of Daytona Beach is the tallest lighthouse in the state at 175 feet tall but it's not the tallest in the United States - that title belongs to the Cape Hatteras Light in North Carolina which is taller at 207 feet. The Ponce de Leon Inlet lighthouse has been restored to active service because high rise buildings block the Coast Guard beacon from the other side of the inlet. The lighthouse and its three keepers' dwellings have been restored and are open to the public all week with the lighthouse tower open for climbing. The lighthouse is maintained by the museum staff and it became a National Historic Landmark in 1998.
