On June 13, 1956, the Town of Lighthouse Point came into being when 107 of about 600 people living here voted to incorporate. Nowadays the community is known as a relaxed, seaside vacation escape with about 10,000 year-round residents. Most of the town is nestled quite near the ocean and does not extend westward very far like other nearby communities. All of Lighthouse Point is situated east of Federal Highway (US-1) and most homes are either directly on water or nearby. With such proximity to the ocean and the Intracoastal, and an extensive network of canals, Lighthouse Point is a boater’s paradise. You’ll find multi-million-dollar homes with similarly priced yachts docked out front, but there are a wide selection of modestly priced condos to choose from too.
