|About these ratings|
The southern tip of Daytona Beach has a few restaurants and bars and some shoreline. However, the most-visited part of the inlet is the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, one of the tallest lighthouses in the United States.
If you're looking for a great view of the area, get your heart pumping up 203 steps to the top of the 175-foot structure. A TripAdvisor user says, "For those that climb to the top, an unparalleled panoramic view of the surrounding area awaits." Afterwards, stop by the museum, where you can stroll through the exhibits and learn about the history of the area. Should you get hungry (and who wouldn't work up an appetite after a climb like that?), the inlet offers plenty of spots to get some grub.
There is a small (but worth it) fee for admission to the lighthouse and museum. Discounts are available for children ages 11 and under and for seniors and members of the military.
