  • Nice stroll down a path to this waterside lighthouse. Great views of the harbor as well as the beautiful homes that line the waterfront. Peaceful walk best done during daylight. 
  • Every time in Edgartown I walk out and visit the light house. I love the peacefulness and beauty. Great place to walk the pups and have kids run along the paths. 
  • Very pretty setting and grounds- easy walk right in front of Harborview Hotel. Closed when we were there but nice beach area, nice walk next to the harbor in Edgartown.
