Explore a Long Island Lighthouse
Are you looking for some day-trip ideas in Long Island? Why not book a vehicle from Empire Rent A Car and spend an afternoon at the historic Montauk Lighthouse? As one of the top 10 things to do in Long Island by TripAdvisor, the lighthouse is a National Historic Landmark and is a beautiful sight on the east coast.
Here are some ways you can enjoy the lighthouse (and the journey):
- Pack a picnic lunch, and make a day of it. You can find plenty of grassy areas to enjoy views of the lighthouse, the shoreline, and the Atlantic Ocean.
- Bring your camera, and explore your artistic side. The lighthouse is so beautiful on its own, so you don’t have to be a professional to take home some beautiful shots to enjoy.
- Visit the lighthouse museum, located in what was once the lighthouse keeper’s house. You can find historic documents and the stories behind this iconic attraction.
- Check out the events calendar before you go. You may be able to time your visit to enjoy one of the events that occur at the lighthouse each year.
- Stop at the visitor center to get your tickets and to take home a memento of your trip as well.
