Worth a visit if you are in Chatham. The lighthouse is kept in good condition and looks out over the beach and waters. Parking is available but quite busy.

We visited the lighthouse as we were traveling to Provincetown Cape Cod. We have been there several times over the years and it always gives one a sense of power and security. This time we also saw the now decommissioned Coast Coast vessel parked on...More

On our tour around the Cape, we visited the Chatham Lighthouse. It is a beautiful place to get a feel for the Atlantic ocean. Too bad it was a windy, rainy day, still is a lovely spot for a walk.

It was Monday evening we got to Chatham Light House, the view is beautiful. I was glad that I visited this place. Cape cod has many light houses, one of the best ones is the Chatham light house.

Interesting history and recent moving made featuring a daring sea rescue with the lighthouse playing a prominent role in the return of the rescue team. Just a lovely area with a nice beach across the street for strolling. Some free parking too

I had heard so much about this, I expected more. It's okay. It's large at a military academy....the views are okay, but really no big deal.....

The Chatham Lighthouse is only a few minutes from "downtown" Chatham. The lighthouse was closed when we stopped, and it was kind of a cloudy morning, but still beautiful to see. There's free parking across the street, overlooking the beach, so it's easy to stop...More
