Along with the lighthouse, the lighthouse keeper’s quarters, the Fresnel Lens exhibit and a museum and a gift shop to nicely round off your visit to the lighthouse.

Absecon Lighthouse, Atlantic City Reviews

  • Loved it. First time seeing a light house. The views were amazing. The climb was tough but again the views were amazing and so was the cool breeze at the top that also made it so worth it. The admission price was fair. The little souvenir shop was very nice and the staff made you feel welcomed. So worth the trip. Several buildings you could see and little things to do.

  • We went to this lighthouse on a spur of the moment idea because we were in the area with some time to kill and it was such a great idea! We were met at the top of the lighthouse by a volunteer named Buddy who was the sweetest man! He was so informative of the lighthouse and the operations. He informed us he was 90 years old and climbed the lighthouse three times a week!! The view of Atlantic City and the beach were beautiful! Recommend visiting if in the area. I believe the cost was about $10.00 per person to climb the lighthouse.

  • Super great history to visit. Loved the older gentleman at the top. He was so knowledgeable and he had passion for the light house. Loved it and so did my kids. The 228 steps was a little rough for my out of shape body though

  • Omg....beautiful evening watching the moon come up. They had a special evening ascent that allowed us to watch the moon rise. Buddy, the docent at the top, is amazing. He's no youngster but he's up there and he's passionate and he's just a pleasure. Delightful way spend our anniversary evening.

  • Atlantic City doesn't have very many historic places to visit. Although I have lived my life I never visited to Lighthouse before. I thoroughly enjoyed myself learns a little bit more about the town that I live in or I've lived in. Views from the lighthouse we're quite astonishing and the guide guide was thoroughly informational and her presentation about the lighthouse . I would recommend to anyone to take the time to visit lighthouse and to bring their youngsters with them for a great day
