Very small lighthouse, in the middle of a roadway. Across from the visitor center. Not sure why this is so featured.

I loved the history of the lighthouse, but it was surprisingly small. It is worth a stop. Especially since it is sandwiched right between the pier and the visitors center. They are also worth a stop, so a three for one.

Wonderful place to see the ocean and take pictures. The visitor's center is directly across the street from the lighthouse. Be sure to see it at night while it is lit.

Loved the beach, the lighthouse pier and the lighthouse. If you like to watch amazing sunsets the pier is definitly the place to go.

Location In the middle of a busy four lane road makes it hard to reach. Lots of stairs, like all other lighthouses, makes it not for the out of shape.

Located in the median (nuetral ground for us NOLA natives) this is a cute little lighthouse. You can park and play frogger across traffic to get pictures outside but its not open to go inside.

When we first saw the lighthouse, I thought it must be a replica or something because it’s so tiny compared to other lighthouses and it’s in the middle of the street! I’m not sure you can even go inside, but driving by or parking at...More
