It’s a strenuous climb with 257 steps, but you’ll be rewarded with gorgeous views from the top of the tallest brick lighthouse in North America. You’ll also have a great view of the lighthouse’s previous site before it was relocated in 1999. The self-guided climb is not recommended for young children because of narrow stairs and only one handrail on one side.
