Okay, a quiet friday afternoon, so I did a little online research.
Out of the six light houses I was looking at for our cruise, three of them are not really open to the public on a regular basis (numbers 9, 10 and 11 on the map in post #1)
The following lighthouses do have regular visiting hours on the weekends in the spring:
Absecon Lighthouse (Atlantic City) #6 on the map
Hereford Lighthouse (North Wildwood) #7 on the map
Cape May Lighthouse (Cape May) #8 on the map
So my question for everyone - Does a run involving only these three lighthouses sound like a full enough day? If we figure we will stop in Wildwood for lunch and the carshow for a few hours, I think it would end up being a pretty full day with just these three. More sightsseeing than driving then I was originally expecting though.
If we want a longer drive, we can still start out at Absecon or one of the other closed lighthouses and just plan to do drive-by type stops at the other ones. It will depend on whether or not there is a parking area for us to gather in if the lighthouses themselves are closed to the public.
So please share your thoughts.
