    The stairway to the top is very narrow and kinda scary, but it's a cool view at the top. The history museum inside the house is really interesting.

    Don't pay for the lighthouse - just climb the rocks around it - save $9 and feel adventurous.

    If you don't want to climb the lighthouse don't bother paying admission. You can walk around the fence along the rocks for free and get great views.

    The best part of this beautiful place is outside the lighthouse, not in. Walk down to the beach and up around the rocks. Stay away from the tick grass.

    Rather than paying the $9 entrance fee to go in to the lighthouse, walk down the trail to the left for free and enjoy the beautiful views of the lighthouse from the beach
