Absecon Lighthouse - Review

The Absecon Lighthouse, an 1857 relic, is New Jersey’s oldest lighthouse and man-made tourist attraction. Its recent huge budget restoration makes it one of the most coveted must see sights in Atlantic City. 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. The highlight of your trip will be the 228 steps climb up to the top for a magnificent view of the Atlantic City skyline.

Absecon Lighthouse, Atlantic City Reviews

  • Very old largest standing lighthouse in jersey, 3rd largest in the country. Its 228 steps to the top and i believe it stands 171ft in the air. Be ready to take this climb with a few rests in between landings.. Ive done this climb to the top 2 years in a row and I'm a pack-a-day smoker and weigh well over 200lbs. So if i can do it so can you....NO EXCUSES!

  • 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.

  • A visit to this historical place was amazing and educational. 150 years old and still here. The staff volunteers are amazing they answer all your questions and part with all their knowledge about the lighthouse. The climb is 228 steps with breathtaking 360 views of the whole AC strip and the ocean. A must visit for anyone travelling to AC.

  • A truly wonderful place to visit in Atlantic city...sadly most people stick to the casinos and the revamped board walk for touristy attractions..but that is a piece of history right there...we had wandered off the board walk to reach there..you could take a cab or a bus also...$8 per person....walk up the old winding metal steps..take a break at the middle platforms to catch a breath...but once you reach upstairs, you would understand the pleasure at the end of the effort.. simply breath taking views of Atlantic city...
