Just another light house. Nothing special to see here. Nothing unique about this location or history.

Please make this a must-see. Short of going to Ship Island, this is one of the best views on the coast. While a pic from the Visitor Center is great, the best experience is going when the lighthouse is open and you can climb to...More
