Winter at Sandy Hook

Some things to do at Sandy Hook in this colder season.

Lighthouse Tours   Daily, 1 PM to 3:30 PM   November 1 - April 30
Tours are first-come, first-served. Visitors must be 48 inches tall to climb the tower. Sign up in the 1883 Keeper's Quarters for free lighthouse tours, and see exhibits on New Jersey lighthouses, a rotating art exhibit, and visit the gift shop. Grounds and video in the adjacent barn are always open. Groups must make advance reservations. Call 732-872-5970 for more information.

History House   Fort Hancock's Officers Row Building 1   Weekends, 1 PM - 5 PM

An 1898 lieutenant's quarters on "Officers Row" overlooking Sandy Hook Bay is furnished to resemble the WWII era, the busiest time in the fort's history.
