Key Biscayne Lighthouse

My brother took me to the best kept secret of Miami this morning, the Key Biscayne Lighthouse. Wow, if you have not gone here before, make this your priority next time you visit Miami. This is a beautiful park with so much to offer. Here are the best parts about the lighthouse:
  • It's so picturesque (obviously)! Look at the photos below for the beauty on the outside, the perfectly preserved interior, and views from the top of the lighthouse. I was blown away the entire time I was walking around the lighthouse, both on the ground and the top of the tower.
  • Stiltsville - There is a grouping of colorful homes built on stilts just off the shore of this key that you can see so clearly from the tower. This view is mind-blowing and makes you wish you could get closer and see inside the homes.
  • The views from the top - Incredible! From the different beaches, Stiltsville, the skyline of Miami, big beautiful homes, and palm trees all over. There is a 360 degree view of all Florida's bests, right here.
  • The lush vegetation surrounding the lighthouse was so rich and colorful.
My warning to you if you do visit, call ahead to see if/when they are opening the lighthouse for you to visit. When we arrived the tower was locked, but we nicely asked a park ranger to unlock the door and let us in. As we walked out, he locked the doors again allowing my brother and I to be the only visitors of the day.

Look at the beautiful images below, and get excited for your next trip to Miami!

I will throw a little fashion into this post since I did pick up a new skirt, shirt and sunnies for my trip:
