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.

This house is just outside Nauset Light Beach - bring a suit and beach items and spend the day in the huge waves! We saw a seal swimming just 50 yards from the shore!

We drove on ROUTE US 6 stopping at almost every lighthouse. This one is beautiful, easy to get, not as tall as we imagined. But its a great view, a great place for lighthouse lovers. One of my favorites in Cape Cod.

This is a classic red-and-white lighthouse set high on cliffs. It makes a good backdrop for photos - up close or from down on the beach.

Very small parking lot across from lighthouse which can make parking very tricky, as it is also the parking lot for the beach. Lighthouse tours are very limited, so check the schedule if you want to go inside.
