This old lighthouse, built in 1859, fits in very well at Cape May, a town where time almost seems to have stopped in the 19th century. More than 600 Victorian buildings, many of which have been colorfully restored, help draw tourists to Cape May, which has been declared a national landmark.

The 158-foot white lighthouse can be found at the tip of the cape in Cape May Point State Park.

Ambitious visitors can climb the 199 steps to the lantern room. The double-wall tower housing the stairway is 27 feet wide at the base and 13.5 feet wide at the top. The aero-marine beacon can be detected by ships passing 25 miles away. This lighthouse replaced one built in 1847, which replaced a still earlier one built in 1824.

The area around the lighthouse ranks among the top spots in the nation for bird watching. Ornithologists have counted more than 400 species here.

To visit the lighthouse, travel south on the Garden State Parkway until it ends in Cape May. Then look for Lighthouse Avenue off Sunset Boulevard.
