Lighthouses: There are several lighthouses within Cape Cod National Seashore, reminding us of the Outer Cape's strong connection to the sea. Some of the lighthouses are maintained by partners, such as the Nauset Light Preservation Society and Eastern National. These organizations open the lighthouses to the public seasonally, and also provide the necessary maintenance to ensure that the lights shine brightly and are open to the public long into the future.

Highland Light, Truro: Open daily from mid-May to Columbus Day. Operated by Eastern National.

Nauset Light, Eastham: Open twice a week during the season. Operated by Nauset Light Preservation Society.

Three Sisters Lights, Eastham: Open for tours periodically during the season. Pick up a copy of "Park News" at a visitor center for tour days and times.

Race Point, Wood End, and Long Point lights in Provincetown are accessed by walking over sand.
