It’s a great feeling to know you exploded the only duel lighthouse in the United States. Great experience and peaceful grounds. Make sure you try and visit them all along the Jersey coast!

Stopped up here to look at the river below carrying huge chunks of ice out to sea. Theres a great view of Sandy Hook up here and if you climb to the top of the lighthouse, the view gets even better. Don't forget to stop...More

See the lay of the land from Long Island to NYC to Long Branch. The views are unmatchable from the top of the lighthouse. 10/10 on the WOW scale. The lighthouse museum is interesting and covers the lighthouse history, life-saving station history, ship wreck history...More

Beautiful twin lighthouses with wonderful views (on a clear day you can see NYC). The lighthouses themselves are absolutely delightfully made from stone.

Heading toward Sandy Hook the turnoff for Lighthouse Road isn't marked, so be careful. Lighthouse Road is also a narrow road, too. But well worth the effort getting here - even without binoculars could see the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. North Tower has a tight spiral...More

Near Brooklyn, New York this lighthouse represents quite a rich history of the area. If you love Light Houses, this is one of them you would love to visit. Soothing view of surrounding is simply breathtaking. One can see the Bay Area and big city...More
