  • Little Brewster Island is home to Boston Harbor Light, the oldest operational lighthouse in the USA. The short boat ride out to the island is lots of fun and scenic. The island itself is quite small and easily walked, made even easier by the paved paths. Views from the lighthouse's lantern room are amazing. Little Brewster Island is a great place to visit for any lighthouse enthusiast! Highly recommend!
