Imagine just the two of you climbing the 88-step spiral staircase to the observation platform for a panoramic view of the island. 360-degree views of the historic district, now, that’s romantic!
Wait, there’s more! The experience permits special access to the Lighthouse, Keeper’s Quarters, and grounds for groups up to six and includes a complimentary bottle of wine or Prosecco, artisanal meats, cheeses, or sweets from Uva Key West. There’s even an opportunity to purchase extras like Key Lime Pie and Roses. The price for two to four people is $300 + and $350 + for small groups - up to eight people.
