Absecon Lighthouse

Get some exercise and take in some history just blocks from the casinos and the Boardwalk at Historic Absecon Lighthouse.

The lighthouse, which was built in the mid 1800s, offers visitors a chance to climb 228 steps to the top for a spectacular view. A museum featuring historical exhibits is located on ground level in the replicated 1925 Keeper's House. The lighthouse also hosts special programs and shows throughout the year.


For more information including hours of operation, admission prices, directions, details on programs and events, a historical timeline, and a live webcam, visit the lighthouse official website (link).
