Thoroughly enjoyed going through the lighthouse. It was a little wait but shaded. We didn’t see the village, we had other plans.

Not a part of the national park system, like Bodie and Hatteras lighthouses, but beautiful, nonetheless.

I have crappy knees, but I climbed up to the top in phases, taking advantage of the fans they have on the inside to help cool us down. (It was unbelievably hot that day.) When you get to the 360-degree catwalk at the top (elev....More

Great stop! Beautiful view. Temps were in the high 90’s today. I was NOT excited about the climb to the top, but we decided to experience the Lighthouse anyway. Glad we did! It was actually fun. Loved the view!

My son and I walked up the spiraling staircase to the top of this lighthouse. The view was amazing. There is so much history to read on every level.

Wonderfully kept lighthouse with a fantastic view from the top. The wait to climb is typically less than 15 minutes and costs $10. The money goes to local charities (WIN,WIN!)

A million bricks...wow. The view...wow. A lot of steps...yes, but we'll worth it. The history at this place is pretty cool. The iron steps inside are beautiful. Just to be inside of the lighthouse is a piece of art in itself. No words really can...More

Adults cost $10, however if you just want to go inside and take a photo looking up at the spiral stairway there is no cost.
