  • Awe inspiring natural beaury. Just a quick day trip about one hour drive from The White House on Freedom Way. Get some fresh air and feel nature all around you. Simply spectacular.
  • Such a great place! Had such an awesome time here last year, that we are going here this year again. But we're going earlier, to stay longer!
  • My family and I had a blast here! You get to learn a little bit about the history of the lighthouse and the island. The climb of 200+ steps was well worth the breathtaking views. On the ferry ride we got to see the wild horses as well.
  • Very nice and interesting National Seashore. Did enjoy visiting the lighthouse and walk along the beach and look for seashells. Very informative signs telling you the history of the seashore. The boat ride to the lighthouse was fun also.
  • Beautiful and worth the trip. Kind people
