Ponce Inlet is a quaint little town found just south of Daytona Beach and historically known as "Mosquito Inlet." The small coastal community features various lifestyles, from oceanfront condominiums to modern-style homes on their own beautifully decorated lots. Canopies of trees line many of the streets, which adds to the beautiful landscape of the area. The most historic landmark in Ponce Inlet is the Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse Station, which was built in 1887, and is the third-largest lighthouse in the nation.
Residents of Ponce Inlet have direct access to the beach with various access points littered down A1A, like Lighthouse Point Park with direct access to the Ponce Inlet Jetty where visitors can walk along the beach or partake in some fishing at the inlet. Ponce Inlet is home to some of the best seafood in the area with restaurants like Down the Hatch or Racing’s North Turn, which is situated right along the beach and the historic road course’s north turn. Families enjoy visiting the Marine Science Center, found around the corner from the Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse, which houses a wide range of aquariums and exhibits that allow visitors to bask in the beauty and wonder of marine life found along Florida’s coast.
