New Jersey's tallest lighthouse awaits you at Pacific and Rhode Island Avenues in Atlantic City (walking distance from Showboat Casino). Take an amazing journey into time and above it all as you ascend the 228 steps of the Absecon Lighthouse, one of...more

This was worth the walk. It's pretty cool, the ladies were very welcoming and helpful, the walk up was 228 steps, but worth it. The view was great. A really good place to take the kids, and the adults. They take your photo and everything.
This is a cool lighthouse on the way north end of Atlantic City. I love these old lights and the history around them! I was kinda mad though because we drove all the way up there just to find out it was being rented out...More
I love lighthouses, and this one didn't disappoint. Wonderful staff. It is well-kept and interesting to tour. You don't have to climb all the way to the top to enjoy it. We didn't go to the top because we were on the 30th floor of...More
Well worth the block or so "side trip" off the Boardwalk. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and readily answered all our "tourist questions". Gift area was neat and well stocked. We did not climb to the top. Very foggy and misting rain.
My husband and I went today and what a wonderful choice. Milton was our guide and he gave us fascinating information about it. Its 225 stairs to the top, and its worth every single step. The view is incredible and the history is fascinating. I...More
I visited here for the Lighthouse Challenge in 2018 and got to climb at night. Well staffed to keep the traffic on the stairs and at the top manageable. Reasonable cost to climb. Great views of the city with all the lights. Nighttime is THE...More
Went here with my nephew as an alternative to the the gambling casinos, arcades and the rides along the boardwalk! What a nice little find! Catch the small "trolley"/bus and ride down to the very site of this lighthouse. Take the walk up the steps,...More
The lighthouse has free parking and the grounds and museum are free to visit. If you want to take the 228 step climb to the top of the lighthouse (and, of course, another 228 down), there is a small fee for that.There is a gift...More
Unfortunately, the lighthouse was not opened when we visited on a Wednesday in September. Its claim to fame is that it is the tallest lighthouse in New Jersey and is one of the oldest in the United States. There are 228 steps to the top....More
When you pull up to the Absecon Lighthouse your first impression is that of a site that could use a makeover. The lighthouse needs a paint job and insight steps would benefit from some paint as well. That said it is a great way to...More
Depends where on the boardwalk you are staying. The lighthouse is at the far end near Resorts casino. If you are on the other end of the boardwalk near the Chelsea it is quite far walk but it is doable. They also have the... More
Depends where on the boardwalk you are staying. The lighthouse is at the far end near Resorts casino. If you are on the other end of the boardwalk near the Chelsea it is quite far walk but it is doable. They also have the team on the boardwalk its 2.50 per ride of 5 all day. It runs up An down the bird walk and you can get off wherever you want.
