Found this chem on the map of "things to do" took a drive. It's hidden within a private community of homes. Can't drive but worth the walk to see.

Although you can't walk up to the lighthouse, there are great views of it from the beach. Wish you could see it up close, looks neat!

First, I am a pushover for lighthouses. I grew up on the MS Gulf Coast, so had the famous Biloxi Lighthouse to start with, and still visit it, when we return to the Coast. Same for the Pontchartrain Lighthouse (now rebuilt) in New Orleans. When...More

Limited access road means most visitors must walk through a housing tract to get there, and the property itself was off limits, but we went out for a quick look. Not a lot of character but the setting was rugged and scenic.

We walked the path through the exclusive neighborhood that Taylor Swift’s home is in to the Watch Hill Lighthouse. It is privately owned and not open to the public. It is mostly a large green space in which you are allowed to picnic.

Wonderful lighthouse lookout. Cars not allowed. Have to walk or bike down about 1/2 mile. Open around the year.

Nice walk through lovely neighborhood but when you get to the light house you cannot go up to it or in it.

Revisited twice in two days. Only regret is we had to leave to return home. Mystical, tidy, great place to meditate. Didn't see Taylor S. But that's ok.

Didn't realize that as seniors we could have driven down to the parking lot by the lighthouse so after being fortunate to find street parking we made the trek and it was worth it. To see the summer homes along the way and then the...More

It's a residential road that you walk down to get to the lighthouse. You can't drive your car on the road. You would have to park it and then walk to the lighthouse. When we went the lighthouse was closed to the public - not... More
