A short drive from the hotel brings you to a charming lighthouse. I didn't get to tour the interior, but the grounds appeared nice.

A nice stroll on Light House Road takes you to a pleasant ending. There is a beach to visit. Park benches for those to rest. Pinic tables for eating. A museum near by to visit. Nicely taken care of. Worth a visit.

This was a great visit for the kids the morning before a wedding. They loved the pier, water and the lighthouse and park area. It is very clean, well kept and organized. A great way to spend a few hours

This is a small waterman's museum featuring the lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers house. There were several very interesting exhibits in the static museum, as well. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse but the steep stairs are not for the faint of...More

Pay the entrance fee to enjoy the small (but informative) museum and climb up the lighthouse. Do not miss their boat exhibit (separate building) which is excellent. Docents do a great job. Lovely park and pier offer charming water views. Interesting interpretation about a Nazi...More
