Enjoy the view at the top of this historic lighthouse.

Open since 1848, the first keeper who worked here was a woman, which was very unusual during that era. Over the years, the Key West lighthouse had additions and upgrades until it was determined that a full-time lighthouse keeper was unnecessary. It was decommissioned in 1969 and now functions as a museum. Guests can purchase tickets either in person or online, and you can climb the 88 steps to the top and take pictures on the deck. 

This historic lighthouse is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm, but the last admission time is 4:30 pm. A romantic way to end a trip to Key West would be to book a Key West Lighthouse Sunset Experience, where you can enjoy 360-degree views of the city below and get to spend quality time together while watching the sunset. Please note that these tickets must be purchased at least 24-hours in advance and is a 90-minute experience.
