In Monmouth County, Twin Lights Lighthouse in Highlands was named to the "most beautiful" list here in New Jersey. Twin Lights opened in 1862. The lighthouse is seventy-three feet tall and features two lights on each end of the structure.

Twin Lights Lighthouse was named to the National Registry of Historic Places on December 20th, 1970. I have visited the lighthouse and it sits overlooking Sandy Hook Bay, the entrance to the New York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a beautiful lighthouse and if you haven't checked it out it's worth a visit.
