For those scout leaders and youth club leaders who are always looking for something special for their groups to do especially during wintry weather, consider this…..how about a tour of the historic Twin Lights? If you have not done it yourself lately, consider giving yourself a special Christmas present, or a family outing over the holidays and see how magical it is. While everyone loves the Twin Lights, even those who have lived here for decades or generations have special memories, there is always something new to see and enjoy there, as well as learn about. The best way to do it is with the historian and tour guide at the lighthouse who can give you the story behind the story, highlight the most significant facts, or teach you something new about an old favorite artifact on display. School and group tours are a wonderful way to enjoy a few hours right close to home.
Tours at the lighthouse are available every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday for anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and of course, should be reserved in advance just to be certain groups don’t conflict.
For those who live in Highlands, this is indeed a field trip close to home; for those living near other lighthouses, it’s an opportunity to see the difference between them, learn why each is different, and also, why the Twin Lights are the Twin Lights, not a single Light. There is a fee for the field trips which is only a small part of what it’s worth, but even that is discounted for large groups. Tours generally take an hour but the staff at the Twin Lights will accommodate special needs of groups.
