We took off early to get in the lighthouses before the rain. No disappointment today on the island on lighthouses. This was the first one that we stopped at. Beautiful views. Limited parking.

You can climb the stairs and go to the top of this lighthouse and get wonderful views of the water and the Island. If you don't want to climb stairs you can get lovely views from the bottom of the lighthouse as well.

Nice view (as you'd expect for a lighthouse). Nothing there but the lighthouse and view (and you can't enter the lighthouse).

Cool views of the surrounding area of East Chop. Saw a wedding the day before there. Tour was $5 and got to climb to the top of the lighthouse. Christmas ornaments available for purchase as well.

Beautiful setting with a view of the ocean in a lovely park. It is a sight you don't want to miss! Open every day.
