The Nauset Light in Eastham is located right off of a beautiful beach. It was one of many great photo opportunities while in Cape Cod. If you love lighthouses, this is a pretty one.

I believe that the daily parking fee is now $20. There is no other place to park to get to the lighthouse. They don't start charging until sometime in June though (through September.) You could always go after 5 any day and... More
