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.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

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.
