On our trip we visited several Cape Cod lighthouses and this was one of my favorites. It's the iconic lighthouse that appears on the packages of potato chips. We were lucky to arrive when there was a very helpful volunteer on hand to tell us about the light and its history. We climbed to the top for a pretty nice... More

Beautiful lighthouse that is meticulously maintained and loved by so many of us Cape Codders! We saved it from falling into the ocean some time ago and it continues to guide mariners and landlovers alike with its beams of red and white. Shine on!

Tours given by volunteers who love their lighthouse and know its history. That says it all. Views from above are good. Good tour for both children and adults. Only takes about 45 minutes but worth it. You can wander over to Nauset Beach afterwards.

We didn't manage to go in because it's only open on limited days. It's a wonderful building, we wandered over to take a look at it after a great day at Nauset Light beach, lots of good photos to be taken. Would be nice if it had more open days, hence the 4 stars.

A must stop while in the area for those who love maritime history. The beach is not easily accessible, long stairway down to the sand, but well worth the effort!

So we wanted to see the lighthouse that inspired a picture on a potato chip bag. A factory is right in Hyannis, MA but we digress. Easy to find, no free parking. If you are visiting the beach you may include but just for a photo op, you can take picture and drive slowly around the property. After this, if... More

My two young sons and I enjoyed our visit. Former beach goers had made a sand mermaid that we helped embellish with the great shells we found.
