Absecon Lighthouse Open Daily, Offering Free Yoga & Moon Climb

Recovering from the recent closure, Atlantic City's Absecon Lighthouse will be open every day in July and August and offer free yoga classes and full moon climb

Atlantic City’s own Absecon Lighthouse has been hit by the Covid shutdown like many other businesses, but now this historic landmark is coming back in a big way.

Absecon Lighthouse will be open every day July and August, from 10am to 5pm, and Thursdays until 8pm through Labor Day, with the last climb 1/2 hour before closing.  Adding to the excitement is FREE YOGA at 6pm on Thursdays, sponsored and instructed by “The Leadership Studio” of Tennessee Avenue, Atlantic City.

Join them for their first Full Moon Climb of the summer season this coming Sunday, July 5 evening with the last climb at 9:00pm to see the moon rise out of the ocean.  If you’ve never experienced the 360 degree view of AC’s skyline at night, you’re in for a treat!

Parking, exhibits & Keeper’s Cottage museum are free.  Admission to climb the 228 steps to the top is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $6 for children 4-12, and $5 for Atlantic City residents; active military are free.  Dogs on leashes are welcome on the two-acre lawn and in the museum space.

Masks and social distancing are required, plexi glass shields are installed in the gift shop and Watch Room at the top for your safety, and plastic gloves will be issued to climbers.

First lit in 1857, Absecon Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in New Jersey and the third tallest in the country.  It is the oldest man-made structure in Atlantic City, boasts a first-order Fresnel lens still in place at the top, and offers fabulous views of Atlantic City and Brigantine.  Absecon Lighthouse – 228 Steps – One Amazing Journey!
