Enjoy a day at the beach along the Atlantic Ocean that features a lighthouse built in 1847.

The main feature of this park is the Five Mile Point Lighthouse.  The grounds are open year round but the tower is not.  During the months of April through November there is an admission into the park of $30.00 a day for out of state vehicles.

There is also a beautiful old indoor carousel at the park that runs Memorial Day to Labor Day.  The cost to ride is $0.50.
