The City of Lighthouse Point was incorporated in 1956 and is located in the northeast section of Greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward County. The entire community is east of US1 / Federal Highway, between the major east/west arterial roadways of SE 10th Street and East Copans Road.
Lighthouse Point has a small town atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle, which residents and government officials have consciously preserved over the years. More than 95% of the city has been developed, so it is unlikely the city will lose it’s unique character.
80% of the residences are single-family homes, with a range of architectural influences. A good number of the Lighthouse Point luxury homes are waterfront, thanks to over 18 miles of waterways. The majority of Lighthouse Point homes are in the upper-medium to top price range.
The iconic Hillsboro Lighthouse, for which the city is named, has stood guard over the Hillsboro Inlet since 1906. Due in part to the efforts of the Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society, the Hillsboro Lighthouse is one of the few remaining operational lighthouses in Florida.
Lighthouse Point has many dining, shopping and entertainment options. The area is also conveniently located between the cities of Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale. As a result, popular areas like Mizner Park or Las Olas, Boca Raton Country Club or Coral Ridge Country Club, beaches, museums, fine and casual dining, airports and more are not far away.
