Top 5 U.S. lighthouses

April 13, 2009 | By | Comments (4)


You already know we’re lighthouse crazy here at Coastal Living.

Over the years, we’ve told you about haunted lighthouses, lighthouse inns, and many, many more.

So we immediately wanted to share this Travel Channel list with you. Are these really the best lighthouses in America? Hard to say, but they sure are gorgeous.

  • Portland Head Light, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

  • Heceta Head Lighthouse, Yachats, Oregon

  • Pigeon Point Lighthouse, Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park, California (shown above — credit)

  • Cape Lookout Lighthouse, Cape Lookout National Seashore, North Carolinia (below – credit)

  • Boston Light, Little Brewster Island, Massachusetts


It’s a great list, but it does overlook the 100+ beacons in Michigan, and the beautiful lighthouses in Canada.

Which ones would you add? Let us know in the comments below.

    I stayed there this past spring break. Absolutely awesome, even in the off-season. My friends and i got to play with countless wild bunnies, some of which walked right up to our feet. The ocean-front is to die for. Huge, beautiful Atlantic waves.

    It was also an affordable place and you can beat the experience of the bunnies hopping past your door! I think the hotel is a part of the Cannon Beach Conference Center.
