The Lighthouse Road Trip On The New Jersey Coast That’s Dreamily Beautiful

New Jersey is home to some truly spectacular lighthouses; we’ve got architectural gems loaded with rich history dotted all along our coast. While one of the best ways to see them all is by taking the 2-day lighthouse challenge, held annually in October, you can still enjoy a select few over the course of a summer road trip. Take in some of our most notable lighthouses while enjoying the beach along the way!
