• Overview

    Built in 1857, this 171-foot lighthouse is New Jersey's tallest. The lighthouse hosts educational programs, weddings, guided tours, events and much more. The Absecon Lighthouse remains one of Atlantic City's most popular attractions. Take an amazing journey into time and above it all as you ascend the 228 steps of the Absecon Lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in the country. You'll see breathtaking views of the Atlantic City skyline and up top you'll come face-to-face with the original first-order Fresnel Lens, first lit in 1857. The lighthouse's recent multi-million dollar restoration also includes a stunning replica of the Lightkeeper's dwelling, an educational museum, charming gift shop, Fresnel Lens exhibit in the original Oil House and expansive grounds. Free parking and admission to the keeper's house museum, exhibits and grounds. Absecon Lighthouse is the country's third tallest mason lighthouse and is over 160 years old. Open for climbing. There is an admission fee.
