This beautiful location looked exactly how I pictured Cape Cod before our visit. You can pay $6 to climb the inside and see the museum or it's free to walk around the grounds. They had a nice gift shop and the parking was free.

This was the one to be seen. We came from France to walk in the path of Edward Hopper and see in real life one of his major paintings. The place is calm, beautiful and without crowd. Lighthouse is worth to visit and offers 360...More

Visited here in the early 90's before it had to be moved back from the receding cliff. So glad that it has been restored and that you can now tour and climb to the top of the light! Great coastal history, and a unique setting.

Lovely lighthouse with panoramic views once you reach the top, though I cannot take credit for any of those photos because I get very claustrophobic and make it about half way up and always have to turn back! So thankfully my husband gets up there...More

You can walk to the top, but you must be 44" tall. The stairs are open and shorter children could get stuck or hurt. They are safety conscious, which I liked. First floor had a great historical exhibit on moving the lighthouse back from the...More

We stopped at the Highland Light to grab a quick view of this lighthouse and ocean. It's pretty and there were actually people taking pictures on the lookout. We didn't do the tour, but we're able to take a few shots of surrounding area. I...More

This is a beautiful old lighthouse in a nice secluded spot. Sure, there were other tourists there, but not so many that I couldn't get a photo without any showing. We didn't climb to the top, but we got some great photos, learned about the...More

A nice place to visit, but not much around. No beach access as it sits on a cliff. You can walk up the lighthouse which certainly provides a great view.
