Our photo of the week for this week is one I took of a boat that sits on the grounds of the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood, New Jersey. (click on photo to enlarge it). If you have never taken a tour of the Hereford Lighthouse...you really should as it is beautiful and the grounds surrounding it are equally beautiful. You can find photos of the lighthouse here on my blog by looking under my New Jersey category.
If you want to enter the lighthouse and take a tour of it...you'll have to pay an affordable admission fee. If you just want to walk around their beautiful gardens to admire the beautiful flowers and butterfly gardens, that is totally free. In addition, you'll find some FREE parking spaces in their parking lot, but at busier times, you may need to park at a parking meter and walk to the lighthouse.
Right behind the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse (up on the North Wildwood Seawall) you'll find some benches that you an sit on and look at the gorgeous water in the Hereford Inlet, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and the nearby North Wildwood beaches. If you ask me for my opinion, I'll tell you that this specific area is the prettiest on the entire Wildwoods island.
If you're interested in visiting them, check out their website for their schedule of operations. Throughout the year they hold various events which we try to attend at least two of them every year. If you're heading to Wildwood, Stone Harbor, Avalon and/or Cape May in New Jersey, this is a must-see lighthouse while you're there! It's one of our favorites to visit!
