St. Augustine Lighthouse was built in 1874. The 165-foot tower has a black and white spiral on the outside, and a red lantern room on top. Its Fresnel lens flashes once every 30 seconds. If you climb 219 steps to the top of the tower, you will get a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and historic St. Augustine!
