Pretty as far as lighthouses go, however I was not about to pay $14 for my husband and I to walk up it. I found that a bit steep.

I love lighthouses. It is located just west of downtown. I didn't climb to the top, due to excessive heat, but so glad I saw it.

We rode rented bicycles from our B&B to the Lighthouse. It was a great 4 mile ride to the lighthouse and it was fun to see the area.
