  • Found this little gem a couple of years ago while taking an early morning walk while in North Wildwood. I haven't been inside yet, but the grounds are just beautiful. I make sure I walk to at least.....  more »
  • Gorgeous Victorian house with a Lighthouse on top. Check for hours. Very close to beach. Unique style but worth the trip for lighthouse lovers.  more »
  • Quaint and full of history, the Lighthouse was a great stop. The attendant was very nice and knowledgeable. The views from the top are really cool and the beautiful butterfly gardens are totally worth wandering through. We loved this place.
  • It's small, yet an important piece of history. Very well up kept. They also have a beautiful garden that surrounds the building, great for family pictures.
