Since it's a seasonal destination we were not allowed to go inside but still it was a great little drive to get there and cool dated houses on the drive most early 1800's and a few 1700's. To get to the lighthouse you have to...More
The lighthouse is not impressive and the location between tow building is not great for pictures. However the parking is along the water and is a great place for walking and taking picture winter of summer.

Sorry for the delay in replying. Yes there is a huge parking lot at the end of the street which is just a very short walk to the museum and if you park facing west you will enjoy the most beautiful sunset over the water.
