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.

Enjoyed our time here. Walked through the museum which is free from Labor Day to Memorial Day but there is a donation box. The history of the lighthouse and the duties the lighthouse man performs were quite interesting. One can only imagine how much work...More
