  • Lighthouse was a very sturdy structure in great condition for being 110 years old. Walk up was a good workout... in a tight spiral staircase. Go when its not busy. A cab ride should do it. Restaurant was atop the hill too.
  • Entrance is only $5 per person. ~115 steps up to the top. The views were really pretty even on our cloudy day. Definitely a quick, cute stop! Heads-up, some of the stairs are very narrow.
