The spectacular Absecon Lighthouse


Located in the north of Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Absecon Lighthouse was built in 1854 and put into use in 1857. Although the light on the lighthouse is still on every night now, it is a pity that it lost its navigation assistance function from 1933. Now the lighthouse is open to the public as a museum.

Absecon Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses in the United States and one of the most popular attractions in New Jersey. The lighthouse, 52 meters high, is the tallest lighthouse in New Jersey and the third tallest stone lighthouse in the United States. It has been listed in the national historical records, historic buildings and New Jersey historical records. The lighthouse keeper's room is open to the public as a history museum, which mainly displays the history of marine life, shipwrecks, lighthouse keeper and lighthouse, local souvenirs, photos, etc. in addition, there is an exhibition of Fresnel lens in the oil depot of lighthouse.

Visitors can climb 228 steps to the top of the lighthouse, enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Pacific Ocean, Rhode Island and Atlantic City at a glance, and feel that their body and mind have been baptized by the vast sea water of the Pacific Ocean.
