Cape Henry Lighthouse, Virginia Beach Reviews

  • So neat, our oldest lighthouse! A real landmark of our history, with the battle in the bay area during the Revolution. The people in the shop are nice, too:)

  • First public project funded by the United States Government. Reviewed and signed off by George Washington, checks cut by Alexander Hamilton. Steep climb but worth the view. Summertime temperatures reach 125 degrees up top.

  • Cape Henry actually has 2 lighthouses. Old and new. Both are nice. If you go, realize that you will be entering a military base. You will need drivers licence, car registration and proof of insurance. They will also search your vehicle.

  • You must check in at the military gate shack. But interesting historical lighthouses.

  • What a wonderful place to visit! I love this lighthouse and all the history! Cute little gift shop
