NJ Lighthouse Challenge

Enjoy Fall with a trip up and down the coast of NJ to visit our lighthouses.  This Fall's Lighthouse Challenge is this weekend, October 15-16.  In our area, the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and the Cape May Lighthouse are part of the challenge.  Travel south visiting several lighthouses, stay at the Candlelight Inn on Saturday and visit the Hereford and the Cape May lighthouses.

This is just one of many activities in October.  So enjoy a break from the everyday and see what the shore has to offer.
