Though Gloucester’s Eastern Point Lighthouse is not open to the public, you are welcome to walk the breakwater where you’ll get excellent views of the light. It’s worth going for the walk along the breakwater alone. Don’t let the “private road” signs deter you, the public is allowed to drive to the lighthouse, where there is parking.
Fort Pickering Lighthouse sits at the entrance to Salem Harbor on Winter Island. The park is open all year, though there is a parking fee in the summer for non-Salem residents.
