I love accessibility of this Lighthouse! You can visit every day, rain or snow, and it is just great! For a small fee you can touch the very history! A lot of other lighthouses are making it hard to come inside or even come close...More

A wonderful visit to this lighthouse. Learned much about its history and how it was moved to keep it from falling into the ocean. An informative and picturesque trip good for the entire family

The lighthouse, also called the Cape Cod Light, was relocated to this spot. It is well-kept and has a number of displays and videos explaining the history of the light.

It could not have been more spectacular with the colors in the sunrise & the cloud formations above the lighthouse. Great for picture taking. Also it is right on a golf course so that added a nice addition
