Take the “Lighthouse Challenge” Oct. 21-22

The Ocean City Life-Saving Station, dating to 1885, is one of a few of its type still surviving in the United States and is part of the Lighthouse Challenge.

The Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey is an annual event that takes place the third weekend of October each year.

The challenge is to visit 10 land-based lighthouses, three life-saving stations, one museum, and one virtual site over the two-day weekend of Oct. 21 and 22. It includes a stop at the historic Life-Saving Station No. 30 in Ocean City at Fourth Street and Atlantic Avenue.

The challenge route covers the Atlantic Coast from Sandy Hook to Cape May and the Delaware Bay and River Coast from Cape May to Paulsboro.

Take the challenge and learn more about these historic treasures of New Jersey. A small registration fee enables you to collect a souvenir from each site. Join other families for a fun weekend.
