New Jersey Lighthouse Challenge

  • Hereford Inlet Lighthouse

Marvel at the beauty of the state's 11 participating lighthouses that light up the coastline and a few museums for the annual Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey taking place October 18 - 19, 2014. This exciting event draws thousands of visitors each year to admire these silent sentinels of the sea. During the weekend, all the lighthouses will be open for visitation to promote New Jersey's beacons, familiarize visitors with the locations and encourage them to return and further explore the various areas.

New Jersey is the proud home to some of the oldest and historically noteworthy lighthouses ever constructed. Residents and visitors are encouraged to explore these beautiful beacons of the Garden State's shore areas.

Admission charges and other limitations are decided by the participating organizations at each lighthouse. Visit the Lighthouse Challenge website for more details.
