Take This Mini Road Trip To Climb Two Of New Jersey’s Most Beautiful Lighthouses

New Jersey is home to some pretty incredible lighthouses and all are worth a visit. You can see many of them during New Jersey’s Lighthouse Challenge (each October), which you can learn more about by clicking here. Seeing all of them takes hours (days). If you just want to fit a few into a day of fun, we’ve picked out two of the best. What makes them the best? It’s subjective, of course, but we’ve provided a few fun facts to back our opinion up.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Both lighthouses are located along New Jersey’s central shore area, making them accessible to travelers from all over the state. The sites are less than 6 miles apart, making for a convenient journey. You can find the Navesink Twin Lights at 2 Lighthouse Road, Highlands and Sandy Hook Light at 85 Mercer Road, Highlands.
