Need to rent a car - cheap from Youngs Bike Shop unless you like to bike several hours. Beautiful view and history there.

It is just what one would imagine a lighthouse to be. Picture perfect and of course, a superb location.

Beautiful lighthouse. The views from the bluff are beautiful. We climbed up in a small steppingstone to look out at the ocean, and were rewarded with seals floating along in the water. You can’t go up in the lighthouse, however.

rode bikes from the town to this lighthouse. It was a fun and fairly easy ride (about 10 miles each way) on the bike bath. Had a picnic lunch at the lighthouse then visited the town and beach. The lighthouse was very nice with historical markers at the base.

Took the bus out to Sankaty Lighthouse. Walked through the town and out to the Lighthouse on the cliff hiking trail. Beautiful! After viewing the Lighthouse, we walked back on the road so that we could look at the front of the houses. It was interesting to see the erosion against the beach and the erosion plan. Must do!
