Dine atop a lighthouse

Newburyport_lighthouseIf you're still looking for an unforgettable Valentine's Day experience, you can still book a private dinner on top a lighthouse this Saturday night.

It will be just the pair of you, a private waiter, and sweeping 360-degree views of the Atlantic, the Merrimack River, and Newburyport,  Massachusetts.

The Lighthouse Preservation Society of Dover, New Hampshire, sponsors this imaginative fund-raiser. The lantern room is available to rent year round.

For $350, the Newburyport Rear Range Lighthouse can be yours. The 53-foot brick tower was built in 1873 to guide the way from the Merrimack River into Newburyport Harbor. For another $100 you can have a meal from one of several area restaurants. It's BYOB, so you have to pack the bubbly. The rental price includes the light for six hours and a waiter to carry your meal up 55 steps and a metal ladder to your table.

Better yet, it's mostly tax deductible.
