Fun, quick landmark

Very beautiful views all around. The line to climb to the top was brief. Lots of history and educational value.

Daughters loved it! Took great pics of the ocean. Need a car to get there unless you want to walk the six miles. Very nice!

It was worth the drive to the tip of Long Island to visit the lighthouse. The view was spectacular and the lighthouse museum was very well presented and interesting. And it did not take very long to view everything and to climb up. You can climb to the top!

Take your time to enjoy this piece of history. I went with folks more into selfies than history, so I found it difficult to check out ALL of the historical items and publications.

We visited the Montauk lighthouse and was very annoyed at the money grabbing attitude. First they charge you $7.50 to park than they charge $7.50 per person to get to the light house complex which is a big nothing unless you want to climb the steps to see the view.

An easy climb to the top observation point. Museum at Lighthouse base added to the charm of the visit. There is a certain charm to lighthouses and I enjoy them all..

Very nice, quiet area at the tip of Long Island. There is a little beach area for collecting shells or rocks nearby. You can walk all the way around the lighthouse on the rocks as well. Cherry blossoms were in bloom, so made for some really nice photos.

A wonderful place to go as a family or even on a date. Just to walk into it cost my husband a good $60. Of course then the kids want a little something from the shop. The view is breathtaking, but my husband and I did have to take turns as our son was to small to go up. The... More
