This is a delightful small Historic Lighthouse, with an informative museum of the Lighthouse keepers residence and the inner workings of a coastal Lighthouse, surrounded by beautiful gardens. A nice place to spend an hour or two.

This is is great place to visit while staying in the Wildwoods. So much history. Take a tour, climb to the top and get a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean.

A beautiful spot in North Wildwood, NJ. The lighthouse is really interesting (if you are in to lighthouses) and a fine example of combined keeper's quarters and light tower. The real treat is the gardens. They are beautiful and a real treat.

We are planning a trip in mid-June. I noticed that the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse is only open Thursday-Sunday mornings. If you purchase a discounted combination pass to see both Hereford and Cape May Light, do you have to go to both on the same day?
