The lighthouse is a long drive from pretty much anywhere. It’s way up there. But it’s worth it. The lighthouse itself is well maintained and parking is easy. The views over the body of water are amazing. It’s a great spot.

We just had to go to the eastern most spot in the US. We did. That is the only reason to visit in our opinion.
