I love that this lighthouse is different shaped. There is some interesting history here. Not a lot of parking but some good grass area for a picnic

So many lighthouses, such wonderful history. You can climb to the top and check out the scenery but what's even better is the visitors center that has a video on the history of this lighthouse.

Want to learn more about this region? Stop by this historic lighthouse. Small but interesting museum. Climb the lighthouse just for the fun of it.

We didn't go in to the lighthouse or the associated building, but the lighthouse is easy to get to, right off the main road. It's a little different and the sign said you could climb it, but not sure about the hours.

Over 100 steps to the top but worth the view! Only one set of folks at a time, the stairway is narrow so you cannot pass folks going up or down. You can see the ocean and inland for miles. Beautiful on a clear day.
