A Peaceful Quiet Garden surrounding a Historical Lighthouse

A fantastic place to visit, park benches in and around the super garden, birds, butterflies, and most of all - "Quiet" A great place to sit in the garden and read a book, or just... read more

The Lighthouse was just a short walk from our motel. Beautiful gardens and photo history. Pleasant greeters. Enjoyed seeing inside of building. Will visit again on next trip to N. Wildwood.

While the lighthouse itself was very interesting, my favorite part was what was outside the lighthouse. They have very nice gardens to stroll in, and several benches if you just want to sit and relax. As other reviewers have said, I would suggest a walk along the sea wall that is easily accessible behind the lighthouse. It is absolutely worth... More

I like to check out every lighthouse when I can and this is a very nice lighthouse. Not very tall but very nice. I remember touring this lighthouse as a kid then as a teenager and a few times later as I got older and it brings back memories. It's woth the stop to chech this lighthouse out.

The lighthouse is well worth the visit. It is a working lighthouse as well as a Victorian home. The gardens are spectacular and a wonderful place to take a break during a hectic week of vacationing. There is free parking as well as numerous bike racks. I recommend taking a walk on the sea wall behind the light house to... More

The Hereford Inlet Lighthouse has a great history. There is a wonderful butterfly garden in the front. We've seen many different butterflies on our yearly visits. The gardens behind the lighthouse are beautifully designed and provide a quiet spot to study the lighthouse structure. There is also a path that leads out to a great ocean view.

Very lovely gardens and a scenic lighthouse in North Wildwood. We have many photos from the abundant flowers. It is a short walk through the garden to the sea wall.

I used to visit the lighthouse with my family all the time when I was little. We decided to go back last year and still loved it! The property is beautiful and well-kept. I love that they go in depth about all of the rich history of the property as well. It's very interesting!

My family loves the Hereford Lighthouse. It's beautiful and historic and the gardens around it are simply breathtaking. You cannot visit North Wildwood and not stop here for a quick stroll. It's a must!
