Visit this historic lighthouse in southern New Jersey.

Construction of the Cape May lighthouse began in 1857 and was completed in1859. This particular lighthouse is third lighthouse to be built in New Jersey and the only one of the original three still standing. There are exactly 199 steps to reach the top of the lighthouse. For those who cannot climb, you can also enjoy the visitor center, museum, and the Oil House on the grounds.

The Cape May Lighthouse is fully operational and can be visited between 12 pm and 4 pm on the weekends. This lighthouse was restored in 1988 and is a national historic landmark. You can see this place by heading to Cape May Point State Park; it is also an excellent area for a picnic or nature walk with friends and family. If you're taking an east coast lighthouse road trip, be sure to add Cape May to your itinerary.
