If you love lighthouses, this is a must see. Parking across from it to take pictures. If you want to capture some great pictures, go to the top of the Beau Rivage parking deck, and shoot from there!!!!!

This is worth seeing and hard to miss if you are driving on US 90. It stands right in the middle of the Road. I can remember seeing it as a child. It still looks great.
