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.
