    Well preserved yet still active lighthouse. Lots to see and learn on the tour not only about lighthouse history but also the military collections housed on site. Loved that we could climb up the tower.

    Very nice WORKING lighthouse in a great setting. Give yourself plenty of time to look around and take an optional tour of the lighthouse. Or just walk around the grounds and visit the shop as besides all the lighthouse and maritime memorabilia, there are several rooms filled with military artifacts as its also a veterans park museum. Really enjoyed the visit.
