“Worth the climb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Our entire group of 2-60 year olds climbed this to see the view and take some photos. Lighthouse is made of brick and had interesting displays inside.

“Long wait, nice views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The park where the lighthouse sits has a lot to offer and during the summer, you can enjoy wine tastings. If you want to visit the Lighthouse, be prepared for a long wait. Take turns standing in line, enjoy the park. Keep an eye on the weather- thunder and/ or lightening closes the lighthouse. The view is spectacular.

“Historic landmark in an old historic village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Park and walk through an old village of homes repurposed for a bookstore, general store, charter school, etc. An interesting afternoon and a lot of history. Lots of steps to walk up in the Lighthouse but a speculator view once up there.
