This special day evolved out of this event in an effort to preserve lighthouses as important historical American symbols. National Lighthouse Day honors and commemorates a beacon of light that symbolizes safety and security for boats at sea. Come celebrate this day with family-oriented activities, a climb of the tallest Lighthouse in Florida, and explore many historical exhibits. Visit the "Old Lighthouse Keeper" as he describes his duties at the historic Lighthouse. Activities include: Keeper in the Office, Guess the Artifacts Table, Children's Craft Activities and Knucklebones Game Area, and are all included with the price of regular admission.
