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 managed by partners. These organizations open the lighthouses to the public seasonally, and may also provide the maintenance necessary to ensure that the lights shine brightly and are open to the public long into the future. Highland Light, Truro: Keeper's Shop and tours typically available from late spring through early fall. Operated by Eastern National under agreement to the National Park Service.

Nauset Light, Eastham: Open Sundays and Wednesdays, 4:30-7:30 pm, spring through fall. Operated and maintained by Nauset Light Preservation Society under agreement to the National Park Service.

Three Sisters Lights, Eastham: Stop by on Mondays at 11 am for tours by rangers and volunteers from spring through fall.

Pick up a copy of the seasonal activity guide at a visitor center for up-to-date tour days and times.

Race Point, Wood End, and Long Point lights in Provincetown are accessed by walking over sand. The Cape Cod Chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation operates Race Point Light, and occasionally hosts open houses with free transportation to the light. Wood End and Long Point lights are not open to the public.
