One Of The Most-Photographed Lighthouses In The Country Is Right Here On The Delaware Coast

One of the most important waterways in the world is right here in Delaware. Cape Henlopen and the Delaware Bay lead up to the port of Philadelphia, which is one of our country’s busiest shipping ports. For decades, mariners and sailors have made their way between Cape May and Cape Henlopen, and a series of lighthouses that keep them safe up and down the coast. Delaware’s most famous lighthouse may be no longer be warning sailors of the dangers near the shores of Cape Henlopen, but it’s still one of the most recognizable landmarks on the East Coast.
