This century old light house and grounds are a must see. For a small fee, you can stay all day and explore the light house, the light house keepers house, which is furnished with period furniture and actors dressed in period costumes to answer your questions. Then tour the fog signal building and other small buildings. Do yourself a favor and hike down the 171 steps to the rocky beach to get a breathtaking view of the light house and take a picture from there. From there you can see the ruins of the old tramway that used to bring supplies to the light house keepers and their families. The steps coming back up are staggered with resting stops, so don't feel bad if you need to stop to catch your breath- it is worth it!! And definitely take the time to see the half hour movie about the building of the light house. It is full of history, original film and pictures and is quite nicely acted out and produced- not cheesy- like some are. The whole experience is a must see for the whole family!!!
