Light Houses are a romantic location to visit. As is the coastline: just a short drive away from Jacob Hill Inn.
Boston Light is where it all began for American lightouses,
back in 1716. This light is one of several that guide ships through Boston
Harbor, along with the Graves Light and Long Island Head Light.
There are many more lights in Massachusetts. To the north of Boston, in Salem, and south of Boston is the off-shore Minot's Ledge Light and the colonial-era Scituate Light.
Much of Rhode Island is defined by the Narraganset Bay. The octagonal Point Judith Light guards the western entrance to the bay, while the diminutive Castle Hill Light secures the eastern shore. At the southern tip of Jamestown, stands the stately and historic Beavertail Light. Just off Newport Harbor, under the beautiful suspension bridge connecting Newport to Jamestown, sits the restored Rose Island Light, at this one you can stay overnight.
Rhode Island Bay Cruises offers a tour of Ten light houses.
Just west of Pt. Judith you can take the Block Island Ferry from Galilee. On Block Island are the grand Victorian Southeast Light, and the long-abandoned North Light
Watch Hill Light is just across the Connecticut border.
