  • For a great view of the area nothing beats TwinLights! The museum is full of items and facts about light houses and it’s keepers. The climb up isn’t to bad. It’s free to visit and they accept donations. The gift shop has some lovely local maps and blue prints of the light house. A must see for any exploring NJ!
  • I have a thing about visiting Lighthouses, so I wanted to check this place out. This Lighthouse is so beautifully maintained and grounds are gorgeous. The admission is free to go to the top and look out over Sandy Hook. There is also a small museum and gift shop. The people that work in the gift shop are so friendly and knowledgeable about the Lighthouse and the area (especially on where to eat). Such great history at this place. Highly recommend people to visit.
