Wanted to find this place as they were having a Pirate Festival. We had a very nice time at the festival. The next day decided to revisit the lighthouse, so glad we did, as we did not know about the beautiful gardens. Went in the gift shop and spoke with the person who started and designed the gardens. Walked all... More

Haven't been there in a while, but what an amazing treat in North Wildwood,. I fell in love with the gardens that were so lovingly cared for by volunteers. Hollyhocks, double hollyhocks and so many more amazing flowers just take your breath away. The lighthouse is a treat as well. Bring your camera!!!

Nicely restored lighthouse on the edge of North Wildwood. Staff are always friendly and pleasant. The gardens outside are beautiful in the summer and fall and are very well maintained. Even if you don't want to go in the lighthouse you can still take a stroll through the gardens. A must see while in the Wildwoods.

It's a short walk or drive to the lighthouse. They have beautiful grounds and flowers. It's a real working lighthouse

Having spent many of my childhood summers in the Wildwoods, somehow I missed visiting this wonderful lighthouse. Thankfully, on Memorial Day, I was able to take a tour! The property and grounds have been painstakingly and lovingly restored. The first part of the tour is guided, afterwards you are permitted to take your time and wander about on your own.... More

This small ( not very tall) lighthouse is a Victorian era design, decorative and very quaint outside. It was built when there was many ships in the inlet and is a harbor light. There are 4 floors with furnishings. We had a lovely water view from the top floor. There is a nine minute film at the start of your... More

I have been visiting the Wildwoods for approximately 18 years now. Often, I would make the journey from north Jersey utilizing a weekend getaway package from my favorite hotel. I have never opted for this activity until today- Saturday, May 2nd. My mother and I visited Wildwood and decided on something different by virtue of what activities were available as... More

Very cute lighthouse and garden! The gift shop has some fun knick knacks and oftentimes has discounted shirts in the back. I always make sure to stop here every summer. Beautiful walkway behind the lighthouse!
