“Bike to the lighthouse”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I biked by early in the morning, so it was closed. Check tour times before heading over. Placard boards are informative.

“Quick and interesting”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The whole experience takes about 15 minutes, so drop by if you are in that part of town. The lady who greets everyone is incredibly nice and has lots of information. The tiny lighthouse is packed with information. The downside is, the hours are limited and you can not climb to the top. On a side note you can stand in DE and MD at the same time. ;-)

Reviewed 19 June 2013

We were very disappointed. They are all open a few hours and at different time of the year. Would not go back there.

“call ahead for hours”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

The light house is locate right on the Maryland and Delaware border as far as I could tell. The hours were hand written from 9-12. We got out and took photos and read the plaques. If you like lighthouses call for hours or go early in the morning. We did not go up the light house.

“True History”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Remember when I was little I could see the lighthouse light every night I went to sleep. It wasn't until I grew up that I realized what an important role it played in Fenwick's history. Keeping ships safe with the light!
