Take our 2 beagles to LBI each fall for a short vacation. They love the Lighthouse park. This time of year, dogs are allowed on the beaches. It is a lot of fun to see them explore new things. This park gets nicer every year....More

We've climber other lighthouses. The stairs are quite steep and narrow at Barnegat Light. We did enjoy the view at the top, and the walk out toward the ocean. We sat on the sand behind the lighthouse on the bay side. All lovely.
