After going to the North Lighthouse, this was disappointing. Maybe it would have been better if it was open when we went. Not much to see from the grounds and made for a brief visit.

We took a cab and were impressed with this lighthouse and its views. The history of this lighthouse was so interesting. The cab driver was a resident of Block Island and gave us so many interesting facts about his island.

Near the Mohegan Bluffs, this lovely lighthouse overlooking the ocean sits on a gracious lawn. Perhaps a nice picnicing spot.
