Unique historic lighthouse - actually two lights. Great visit in conjunction with Sandy Hook lighthouse a few miles away.

We visited the place here today with my family including grand-kids. It was fun. We climbed the stairs of the Northern Tower, admired the spectacular views and visited the small but well maintained museum. This place has a great location and interesting history - it definitely is worth a visit.
The place is not very big and the souvenir shop is very small also.If you climb the stairs,which are very narrow and steep,you will get a beautiful view of the town of Highlands,the Shrewsbury river and the Atlantic ocean.
This place is a hidden gem for people who like history, lighthouses, and a pretty view. You can walk around the grounds and get some history. Inside are some small rooms with very interesting information. You can walk up the narrow steps to the top of one of the lighthouses for a grand view!
Best part is that it's free!! We walked up to the top and it's got awesome views of sandy hook and nyc. Steps go around and not elevator .. Near the top it gets narrow.. Interesting to learn about the life saving station .. Sandy hook closed thier visitor satiation so go here instead
These lights are the basis of the Army Corp of Engineers insignia. And they are the site of the first wireless transmission across the Atlantic. AND you can climb to the top of one of them!
We visited the twin lighthouses in highlands, nj with my family and an exchange student from.Spain amd she was bery impressed. They have a wonderful exhibit of the American flags from different times throughout the history of the USA. It was most impressive. Also the views from.the top were great since it was a clear day and NY was visible.... 更多
It is a delightful place to visit and a very historic place in the annals of communication. The walk to the top of the light house is not too demanding and the view, if the weather cooperates is fantastic.
