Cape May Lighthouse


The Cape May Lighthouse Is A Classic Lighthouse

 

The iconic Cape May Lighthouse in Cape May Point State Park at the southern tip of New Jersey has lighted the way for about 180 years.

You must climb 199 steps to the top -- and we did it!

The first picture below is the light at the top of the lighthouse. It is a working automated light.

The view from the top is spectacular. 

 

On one side is the Delaware Bay, with the state of Delaware in the distance, approximately 14 miles away. 

 

One day I hope to take the ferry ride from Cape May, NJ to Lewes, Delaware. We just didn't have time on this visit.

 

On the other side is the Atlantic Ocean.
