This is an easy to visit site for all ages, easy to walk and offers a lot of history information in on a small site. For those who can do it be sure to walk to the top of the lighthouse. Parking is close by.

We love visiting lighthouses and this one is exceptional. Beautiful view, the climb is not for the feint of heart. The grounds are immaculate with a lot of interesting information.

It's 5 or 6 dollars to get to see the lighthouse and I actually think they are pet friendly and there is a dog beach at the inlet for pets also...
