Absecon Lighthouse Reviews & Ratings

  • Only 10 dollars for adults to climb the light house! Worth every penny! Beautiful views! And something you don't get to see very often!! Breathtaking!! The staff is so friendly and nice and knows a lot about the history. 💖

  • Easy to get to and wasn't busy. Heck of a climb! 200+ steps. May be a bit scary for those afraid if heights. Great view at the top as you can walk completely around the top in the outside. It's all caged in at the top but the wind was intense on the day we went. Good time.

  • The staff here is very friendly. They have a little gift shop to grab a souvenir. You head up the steps to the top where you are greeted with a little card to say you made it. Beautiful sight from the top with a great breeze that hits the spot after hiking up the 228 steps.

  • Really nice historical site. They have done a great job preserving this landmark. Step away from the casinos and visit this place and support the lighthouse. There is a visitor parking lot on the site.

  • If Following Google direction I suggest Getting a ride there!! Edge of town!. We walked 2 miles up the boardwalk to be disappointed, we had to walk another 3 blocks. Exhausted we couldn't climb up. Otherwise a beautiful site. Nice friendly gentlemen (Buddy) inside the store area.
