  • We had a great time at this beautiful old lighthouse! If you get a chance go and vist. There are 135 steps to the top so consider that. Plenty of parking. All in all a great stop on your trip
  • We went during off-season, so nothing was open. But this is the tallest lighthouse in the state, on a hill offset from the shore. Beautiful building but not much else to see. Sorry that Google crops the pics, so you can't see the whole tower.
