Climb To The Top Of This Little Known Lighthouse In Maine For A Fun Family Outing

Maine is well-known for its lighthouses, and people come from all over the country to see them. With 65 historical lighthouses all across the state, it could take you quite awhile to feast your eyes on all of them, but there’s one in particular that you should put on your list to visit soon. You can take a tour of Burnt Island, then climb right up to the top of the lighthouse!
