It's NH lighthouse week; take a tour of one Seacoast treasure
Celebrate the end of New Hampshire's light house week with a tour of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.
The 48-foot cast iron and brick light house is one of four in the state, attracting tourists from across the country.
Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse is open to the public Sunday afternoons from 1-5 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend in late May to Columbus Day weekend in October.
White Island Lighthouse is New Hampshire's only offshore lighthouse and is located in Rye. The lighthouse is not open to the public, but you can get a good view of it from the water from cruises offered out of Rye and Portsmouth.
Lake Sunapee is home to three lighthouses — Burkehaven, Herrick Cove, and Loon Island. Though they aren't open to the public, all have viewing areas where guests can gaze upon the floating cast iron structures.
