Quintessential Cape Cod lighthouse. Simple with a wonderful view. While there walk across the street to reflect on the 9/11 plaque.

We drove to find this lighthouse and we were disappointed that there is such limited parking. We went passed turned around, tried again with no luck. A few hours later we tried again. There are only about 5 spots right along a narrow road on a bend. My husband stayed in the car blocking 2 cars in so that I... More

Great photo op. cross the road to look at the beach view. Go on a Tuesday morning when they have tours and you can climb to the top.

Limited parking near the lighthouse prevented us from visiting. We had to settle for a drive by. Nice area with beautiful homes nearby.

I enjoyed the bike ride out to see the lighthouse. You can walk up to the lighthouse itself but cannot access any other structures. There is a plaque to provide additional information but no staff that we saw. Worth it for the drive/bike and view but not much if you are in to historical buildings.

We love visiting lighthouses. It appeared you could go up into this one. However, we drove past it at least 5 times and there was never a place to park (we were there on a Monday, not the weekend). The only parking lot only held 5-6 cars. The road was curvy and narrow so there was no place to park... More

One of the most beautiful settings surrounding a lighthouse. Worth the visit, but parking is tough (there are only a few spaces in front of the lighthouse) but your eyes will never forget the expansive views from high above the hill overlooking the water.

The lighthouse makes a great backdrop for pictures. You can't go inside but you can look into the lighthouse through windows at ground level. The views of the water are beautiful. If I ever get back to Cape Cod, I'm including this as part of my trip.
