The Hillsboro Lighthouse, commissioned in 1907 still stands sentry at the Hillsboro Inlet in Pompano Beach. With a candlepower of 5.5 million, and flashing white every 20 seconds - the beacon can be seen a distance of 28 miles. Though the lighthouse can be seen from Pompano Beach on a daily basis, she sits on an active U.S. Coast Guard base and is normally not opened to the public. The good news is - public tours are scheduled monthly, and are well worth a visit. Accessible by boat only for tours, shuttle times, fees, attire are available on the Hillsboro Lighthouse website.
