Lighthouse Point, Florida Details
The Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse was built in 1906, because the Army Corps of Engineers deemed the inlet to be a navigation hazard.
The lighthouse continues to operate, but the Coast Guard turned over the responsibility for maintaining the lighthouse to the Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society in 2013. A museum dedicated to the lighthouse opened in 2012.
Cap’s Place, founded in 1928, is the oldest operating restaurant in Broward County. Then called Club Unique, it was established by Captain Theodore Knight, who was a rum runner during the Prohibition. His restaurant, which was also a casino during the 1930s and 40s, became known for its fresh seafood which it still serves today. In 1990, it was added to the US National Register of Historic Places.

Body and Soul of Lighthouse Point is a luxurious day spa located at 2024 East Sample Road, and it has been in business for over 12 years. It offers a variety of services including facials, massages, and manicures. Its clients include men and children as well as women.
Sport Yacht Charters is a new charter boat company that takes people on tours of the coast of South Florida. Travelers may see such things as sandbars, luxury homes, and local landmarks. The “Victoria Lynn” will also take people to high-end restaurants or bars for special or corporate events.
Packy’s Sports Pub is a cross between a sports bar and an Irish pub. Local bands often perform there, and the pub has two pool tables. Packy’s often holds various competitions like pool, golf or darts tournaments.

Lighthouse Point is a young city; a Miss Juliette Becker built the first house there in 1947. Ten years later, the town, which then had a population of around 600, received a state charter declaring it a city. A little over half the homes were built before 1970, and a majority are single-family homes with two or three bedrooms. About 34.5 percent of homes are apartment complexes, and 6.9 percent are small apartment buildings. As of August 2017, the median home value in town is $460,100, while the median rent is $2399. The value of a home has increased by 7.1 percent over the past year and is expected to increase by another 1.0 percent within the next twelve months.
The latest US Census Bureau reports the median household income between 2011-2015 was $79,658. A little over 80 percent of the population owns their home.
The city is served by The Broward County Public School System, and there are six public schools and three private schools in the county. The city also has a free community bus service that operates within the city and transports people to Pompano Beach and Deerfield Beach. The community bus does connect with routes operated by the Broward County Transit (BCT).
