Lighthouse Point is named after the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, which oddly is not in Lighthouse Point at all but rather in nearby Hillsboro Beach! The area was first settled in 1947 by a Miss Juliette Becker at Sample Road and NE 21st Avenue, but the city was not incorporated by the State of Florida until June of 1957. Some of today's better-known subdivisions include Venetian Isles, Lighthouse Manor, Wooler Heights, Coral Key, and Pompano Waterway Estates, which replaced the native mangrove swamps and farmland of yore. Incredibly luxurious homes priced well into the millions are found along the North and South Grand Canals and the Intracoastal Waterway, making Lighthouse Point one of the most desirable locations on Florida's Gold Coast.
Things to do in Lighthouse PointBe sure to don the proper footwear because the Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society operates shuttle boats from Sands Harbor Resort and Marina’s dock for climbing tours of the lighthouse, but no sandals allowed! Boating facilities include the Lighthouse Point Marina and the Lighthouse Point Yacht-Racquet Club to the north. Despite its small size Lighthouse Point is home to an impressive array of public parks including Dan Witt Park, De Groff Park, Exchange Club Park, and the Frank McDonough Park, with tennis and basketball courts, baseball, football, soccer fields, picnic tables, play areas, and even a covered pavilion.
