Among one of many Lighthouses along the Cape Cod National Seashore, Nauset Light should be on any Lighthouse lovers list!

Nauset Light, officially Nauset Beach Light, is a restored lighthouse on the Cape Cod National Seashore near Eastham, Massachusetts, erected in 1923 using the 1877 tower that was moved here from the Chatham Light.  It was moved to Eastham in 1923 to replace the Three Sisters of Nauset, three small wood lighthouses that had been decommissioned. They have since been relocated to a small field about 1,000 feet west of the Nauset Light.  A short path leads the way from Nauset Light.

Visitors can tour the light and the oil house on Sundays from May to late October and also on Wednesdays during July and August.

If time allows take a walk down the stairs from the parking area and visit the Nauset Light Beach.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
