|About these ratings|
If you can fend off the claustrophobia and don't mind heights, the climb up the tiny and constricting 88 steps to the top of the Key West Lighthouse is worth it for the views. Once you're up there though, be patient. "Once you get to the top, the balcony is one person wide," one TripAdvisor user says. "You couldn't slide past another person on it if you wanted to."
The keeper's quarters have been around since 1887. The cozy house is now a museum that surveys the history of lighthouses in the Keys, with photographs and various artifacts. One ticket gets you access to both the lighthouse and the museum. Some recent visitors complain that it is overpriced; there are discounts for kids 12 and under and for seniors.
