  • It isn't listed anywhere, but this place can only be accessed on Sunday. I walked in on Wednesday only to find no trespassing USCG signs every way leading to the lighthouse. I talked to a guy that walked out of the USCG headquarters and he told me that's the only day you can visit it. You can still walk into historic Fort Constitution, just can't get to the lighthouse.
  • A beautiful and well maintained structure. The view from the top if worth the hike up.
  • Definitely worth a visit especially since you also get to visit Fort Constitution. The lighthouse guide is very knowledgeable. Be aware it gets very hot in the top of the lighthouse in the summer and it's a tight fit with other tourists.
  • Very pretty lighthouse
