  • Beautiful place, lots of history. It had a quaint little gift shop. We just missed being able to go in because they were closing. We only got as far as the gift shop. The actual lighthouse was closed for a private event. Really have to go back so that we can see everything. I would definitely recommend visiting, but get the early to enjoy it.
  • Such a beautiful piece of history! We were lucky enough that we had just missed a storm so we were some of the only folks there and we were able to still climb. There is so much to take in that we spent 4 hours wondering the lighthouse and museums. The view is so beautiful up top, it is breathtaking. It really is a must see!
