Although we could not see much in the middle of a blizzard in early January, this lighthouse still looked regal and gorgeous. We plan to come back in the summertime, but this area, Montauk Point, is priceless any time of the year!

Most people plan to watch the ball drop at home or venture into NYC and freeze their tushes off but not us. A 3 day weekend and it is time to head out East, especially during the off season when the tourist are not swarming the small towns. For the second year in a row we all made the trek... More

A Christmas morning tradition! Always look forward to hot chocolate after a brisk walk on the beach but the gift shop was closed today. Disappointing. Otherwise always a great trip out to Montauk

After a hearty breakfast at Mr. John's on Montauk, bundle-up and head out to Camp Hero and Montauk Lighthouse. Tons of parking. Tons of trails. Picnic options. A Welcome Center. Beautiful location; great for a few hours of poking around. On-occasion one can see whales out in the sea at a distance. Great year-round; peaceful and pleasant off-season.

Beautiful old lighthouse. The tour takes you up a LONG flight of stairs (no need to get any cardio in that day - you'll be fine after climbing all the way up!) and a to a breathtaking view. It's a bit expensive for 2 people (at the time it was $12 each I believe) just to climb up and walk... More

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed the Point! Although a windy morning, we loved the fresh ocean air, fisherman trying to catch some scrumptious creatures, and just the all around beauty and history the Light House has to offer.

If you aren't ready to pay 10$ per adult and 6$ per kid you can simply walk all around on a path with large rocks, and you will be just few feet away from the sea lions ! Awesome views of the beach and the lighthouse from the south side of the path
