2021 New Jersey Buzz explored half of the 11 Lighthouses! Highly recommended as a #fallfunnj thing to do! WE ARE READY FOR 2022 and are going to do the 2nd half of the NJ Lighthouse Challenge! We learned a lot the historic sights and how they are very instrumental to New Jersey’s History and a beacon of hope to many mariners to warn them of dangerous shallows and perilous rocky coasts, and guide vessels safely into and out of harbors. 

New Jersey Fun Fact – Sandy Hook is the OLDEST Lighthouse in the United States! 


The New Jersey Lighthouse Challenge is a self-guided event that takes place the third weekend of October each year!
