Today, I present to you the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse at the Ponce Inlet near New Smyrna Beach, Florida between St. Augustine and Cape Canaveral. This cylinder lighthouse is the tallest in Florida at 175 feet high and the second tallest in the United States behind the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in North Carolina. It is equipped with a Third Order Fresnel lens and shines out 17 nautical miles (32 kilometers or 20 miles). For a small fee, visitors are able to climb to the top of this lighthouse and explore the museum that houses the keepers dwellings and Lens Exhibit building.
