I've seen quite a few lighthouses and to me this one is very eh. I am a picture person and what disappointed me about this lighthouse is to get a good shot of it (the way it's facing) you simply get the lighthouse and no beautiful ocean behind you.

Located at a good place is this historic lighthouse.We cycled around in Block Island and this is the first place to visit among the list of things to see. You can have a little peak of the Mohegan Bluffs from there,another place that you should visit. It has a beautiful view indeed.

Take the tour - it's short and informative! This lighthouse is right next to the Mohegan Bluffs, so you can hit up both "monuments" at virtually the same time.

A must stop along Mohegan Bluff. We biked up the hill and the views are spectacular here. Also get a lemonade at Del's.

A beautiful setting and a great, historic lighthouse. Put it on your list of things to see when visiting block island. Don't miss the Bluffs just up the road.

Took a taxi here. Beautiful lighthouse- it was shrouded in fog, nice touch! 100 steps up to see a real fresnel lens. Lemonade stand strategically placed.

We paid to go to the top of the lighthouse then spent a few hours sitting in the shade reading a few good books.
