DAYTONA, FL — Florida’s tallest nightlight has aided sailors for more than a century. These days, the 175-foot lighthouse and museum at Ponce de Leon Inlet, just south of Daytona, put the spotlight on Florida’s rich maritime history.
After you’ve visited the lighthouse, it’s only a stone’s throw to the delightful beach at Lighthouse Point Park. Here you can enjoy a picnic on the sand dunes, take a nature walk or fish the inlet from a long jetty.
