Final Full Moon Climb of the Year at the Cape May Lighthouse a Special Opportunity for Night Sky Gazers

CAPE MAY – There is just one more opportunity this year to climb to the top of the lighthouse in the nighttime hours during the Lighthouse Full Moon Climb at the Cape May Lighthouse. Climb until you reach the starry top and enjoy a dramatic and memorable view.

The final Lighthouse Full Moon Climb for 2016 is Sunday, Oct. 16 from 8 to 10 p.m. The Lighthouse is located in Cape May Point State Park, Lower Township. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children (ages 3-12).

Since it opened to the public in 1988, some 2.5 million people have climbed the 199 steps to the top of the Cape May Lighthouse; a smaller, select group can say they have experienced the grand vista of the evening sky from atop this majestic beacon at nighttime. Visitors can climb the 199 steps to the top where you’ll be able to see the full moon in all its glory on clear nights and enjoy a spectacular moonlit view.
