92 steps take you to the top of this historic lighthouse. This was a family outing with grandparents and everyone had a fun time. Glad we went early as it was a hot climb, but the view was worth every step.

The Island is beautiful there's a few places to eat and get gas and beverages. Nice little vintage collectable shop and a stained glass shop. The light house is a must see the gift shop was like a overpriced art gallery.

The stairs are wider than most lighthouse stairs. Then there’s a short climb on a ladder to get to the top. Enjoy the view.
