As you walk along the beach of Josephine Haron Park, be sure to go and say hi to Lucy! Who is Lucy, you ask? Lucy is a six story high wooden elephant and a National Historic Landmark. Before Lucy was declared a landmark, she was initially built to attract land buyers. It seemed to work and Lucy was a part of a hotel, a private mansion and a tavern and damaged so badly that if the authorities hadn’t intervened and declared it a landmark, Lucy would not be known to us all. Today, daily tours are held where you will learn all about Lucy and get to climb on top of her for a spectacular 360 degrees view.

  • Great place to see. The tours were every half hour and lasted about that long. It's a few miles away but a great side trip to take with the kiddies. Our tour guide had tons of cool information about lucy and was very knowledgeable. Very nice historic site.

  • The tour is worth the price because it goes to protecting and maintaining this majestic beast. The tour is interesting and insightful. Also, the view is awesome from the top. Would recommend! She is an old girl, which means she has a lot to tell you if you want to listen!

  • Definitely worth the visit when we visited family nearby. Kids enjoyed going inside Lucy, adults enjoyed the view from on top of Lucy and the guided tour. All staff was friendly and helpful.

  • A good way to spend 30 to 60 minutes. Lots of history in Lucy. The tour is a must and the money goes directly into the upkeep of Lucy. The view from the top is nice. You can see the ocean, bay and the city. Located right along the boardwalk.

  • Unique attraction and well worth a visit. Our tour guide was very informative as well. I will say that the tour is more for adults who like history. Kids might get a little bored. Also, it is free to walk the grounds, which is great if you don't want to take the tour and just want to take pics.
