You can walk to the top, but you must be 44" tall. The stairs are open and shorter children could get stuck or hurt. They are safety conscious, which I liked. First floor had a great historical exhibit on moving the lighthouse back from the...More

We stopped at the Highland Light to grab a quick view of this lighthouse and ocean. It's pretty and there were actually people taking pictures on the lookout. We didn't do the tour, but we're able to take a few shots of surrounding area. I...More

This is a beautiful old lighthouse in a nice secluded spot. Sure, there were other tourists there, but not so many that I couldn't get a photo without any showing. We didn't climb to the top, but we got some great photos, learned about the...More

A nice place to visit, but not much around. No beach access as it sits on a cliff. You can walk up the lighthouse which certainly provides a great view.

One of our children was too short to climb to the top of the lighthouse, so we didn't pay to do the tour. However, we had a great time walking around outside and going to the little ocean overlook deck where you could also get...More

This is a great lighthouse to visit. It was the largest and had the best tour. Our guide was interesting and knowledgeable. It was the tallest and best lighthouse on Cape Cod. I would rate it a must see.

The guide was very knowledgeable and clearly had a love for the culture and story behind the lighthouse. The view from the top of the lighthouse was amazing. Very interesting hearing about some of Cape Cod's history. Is definitely a must see attraction.
