  • Great tour up 95 stair steps to the ladder on top. Well worth the time for a short tour. Great tour guide, nice day, well maintained.
  • I wasn't there but looks like it's a pretty heavy house, don't know why everyone thinks it's light. No man can lift this
  • The light house is beautiful. The open hours are not convenient for the casual traveler.

  • It's a beautiful park, with lots of outside activities and a great history.
