About Absecon Lighthouse

Towering over the coastline on the northern edges of Atlantic City, Absecon Lighthouse looks over Absecon Inlet. At 52 metres, it’s the tallest lighthouse in New Jersey and is also one of the tallest masonry lighthouses in the United States.

A restoration in recent years created a replica of the original lightkeeper’s quarters and added an educational museum with a fascinating Fresnel Lens exhibit used in historic lighthouses. Climb the 228 steps for spectacular views of the Atlantic City skyline. You’ll also find the original first-order Fresnel lens lit in 1857, still mounted atop Absecon Lighthouse and lit every evening.

An overnight program invites visitors to sleep in the lighthouse and recreate the experience of lighthouse keepers in the 1800s. The adventure includes videos, a night climb, challenge competitions and optional ghost stories. You can also join a daytime guided tour of the tower and grounds.

Getting There

Absecon Lighthouse is about a 15-minute walk from Atlantic City’s famous boardwalk and casinos. Free parking is available at the site or you can take a Jitney minibus or trolley bus that runs along the waterfront. Atlantic City Airport is a 30-minute drive away.
