“A postcard moment during a visit to Chatham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

No visit to the Lower Cape is complete without a stop at a lighthouse, and Chatham light has a beautiful beach and view to add to the experience. During the day, at dusk, or at night, it's a lovely spot to stop, have a look, snap a few pictures and then remember the experience when you look back on it in the future. This is an active Coast Guard site, not just a tourist attraction, so access to the site is limited but it still makes for a fun stop during your day.

Parking is usually pretty busy, and there is a time limit for how long you can park there, but it is worth the trip.

“Close to home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Although we only live an hour's ride away. we had never been to Chatham The sight of the beautiful shore line and the unique light house made us think about coming here more often. It is a wonderful sight and worth the ride .

“Take the tour to the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Several times a year, this lighthouse is open to visitors - check the website. There's always a line, but a short climb to the top provides a great view of the nearby beach and many islands and channels nearby.

Coast Guard authorized only property, pay attention to visiting hours.

“Standing Sentinal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Though you can't tour the light house unless they have an open house, it is still a nice picturesque setting. The beach is very nice too, although we were there in the fall on a chilly day but a view of the ocean is always nice. There is not really a park on the grounds so you must view the the lighthouse from across the street.
