St. Augustine has many beautiful, historic structures. One of them is the St. Augustine lighthouse. The 165-foot-tall St. Augustine Lighthouse, Florida's first official lighthouse, was built in 1875 to replace the old Spanish lighthouse that had stood at the inlet since 1565.
You should be in good condition to climb the 219 steps to the bright-red observation top of the lighthouse, but, with the exception of the top one-third, there is a landing every 360 degrees of the sprial stairs. There are several places to step aside and rest for a few minutes. On a cloudless day the climb is worth it for the view.
In 2007, the SyFy Network's popular show Ghost Hunters filmed an episode in the Saint Augustine Lighthouse and found that, after a thorough investigation, the lighthouse is, indeed, haunted!
