Long Description:
This Lighthouse is truly an awesome piece of Lighthouse History.Built in the 1800's.This is one of the first lighhouses to be built in the tampa bay area.Altough the lighthouse has been re-built 3 times,due to hurricanes,it still stands today.
Overlooking the eastside of Egmont Key,the lighthouse has been fully automated in 1989.To get to egmont key to see the lighthouse you need to take a ferry from Ft.Desoto park.Price is minimal and worth every penny.
