My friends and I went on a tour of this lighthouse out of Hudson, NY. We got onto a small boat and took the 10-minute ride to this beautiful lighthouse. The lighthouse is unique because it is surrounded by water and the tugs, barges, and tankers go right by as you watch. There are 3 levels to explore and you can go out on the decking surrounding the lantern room. The breeze up there was terrific and you feel like you can almost reach out and touch the ships as they pass by. There is a gift shop in one of the rooms on the second floor along with bedrooms. A kitchen and living room are on the first floor along with another bedroom. Displays and videos are also present. The breeze through the windows was awesome. There is a deck outside the lighthouse with picnic tables.
