New London Harbor Lighthouse Tours
July 26 - September 30
It’s SUMMER and the New London Maritime Society is giving tours to visit inside New London Harbor Lighthouse. The visit takes around 45 minutes.
Everyone uses hand sanitizer and we all wear masks.
We meet at the lighthouse, then climb 116 steps to the lantern room — all the while learning about the 260-year history of Harbor Light, one of the oldest lighthouses in the country.
Tours for two people at a time, or one small Covid pod, may be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggested donations are $35 for adults, $30 for NLMS members, & $25 for youth 7-to 18 years old.
The New London Harbor Light Lighthouse is the 4th oldest lighthouse in North America and the oldest in Connecticut. It is owned by the New London Maritime Society and managed by the US Coast Guard.
