The lighthouse was beautiful even on an overcast day. Be sure to check out all the interesting trails around the lighthouse, especially the unmarked one just behind the lighthouse. It takes you along the water on the Gulf side.
We're been going to the lighthouse for years and would recommend it to anyone. Good trails to hike and beautiful scenery. Be careful around the water's edge, especially with small children and pets. Alligators are in the area, but if you stay on the trail,...More
