Things to do on holiday to Ponce Inlet, USA

One this area?s key attractions is the 175 foot-high Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. Construction of this colossal structure began in 1886 and it remains a central piece of Floridian history. Of course those who climb to the top of the lighthouse will be treated to stunning ocean views, but most visitors are equally surprised by the neatness of the place and how well it has been maintained. The climb is quite a challenge and visitors should be prepared to climb up 406 steps to reach the pinnacle. The lighthouse keeper quarters and other buildings around the lighthouse have been converted into a museum bearing plenty of information about life in the lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers who served there.

Surfing is another one of the activities that brings visitors to this location. Off the Ponce Inlet Jetty there is a decent size swell that both beginners and more experienced surfers can enjoy. But a trip to the New Smyrna Beach is recommended for a more exciting surfing experience. Chartering a boat for a cruise or for a fishing expedition is also a fun way to spend time here.
