The whole family had a good time going up in the lighthouse and learning the history. We had fantastic views from the top and the perfect spot for a family selfie.

I loved the climb up the 88 stairs for the wonderful panoramic view of Key West. The museum was very interesting. The benches with sculptures was fun. The gift shop is really fun to shop.

Unlike some of the other light houses this one does not have landings to rest on. I have a bad back and weak legs, and asthma, it was a struggle for me but i made it and it was well worth the struggle.
