The Beautiful Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood

Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. This lighthouse sits about 3 blocks from our condo and overlooks the Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean.

One of my favorite lighthouses is in the Village of Anglesea, North Wildwood New Jersey and its called the

It has beautifully landscaped grounds with numerous floral gardens and butterfly habitats that you can stroll around in for free! There is only a charge if you decide to go inside the lighthouse for a tour. The lighthouse is open year around. The lighthouse is a working lighthouse as well as a museum. The lighthouse was built in 1874. You can read about the history of this lighthouse on their wonderful web site.

Behind the lighthouse and overlooking the bay is a mini cement boardwalk with comfortable park benches that you can sit on and view the ocean and scenery. There is also a nice clean beach behind the lighthouse which is great for a romantic picnic lunch and that beach isn't as crowded as other Wildwood beaches. In addition, there is an old wooden Wildwood row boat in the back that you and your family can sit in for picture taking time.

The photograph above shows the beautiful ocean view behind the lighthouse. We love walking behind the lighthouse on the mini cement boardwalk and trails and we love walking the streets in front of the lighthouse.

Within walking distance of the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse are several Irish pubs, pizza shops and convenience shops that you can visit for lunch, dinner or a snack.

We hope you take the time to visit the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood, New Jersey the next time you are visiting the area. It's a beautiful place to visit!
