New Jersey Lighthouses
With more than 15 lighthouses standing tall as of this date, New Jersey is one of the most popular states in the USA when it comes to visiting, photographing, and looking for lighthouses to visit. There are many reasons why this could be the case, but one of the most important reasons is that NJ is full of people that are proud of the culture and history that the state carries. Being one of the first states in USA history, historians say that people have lived in the area for more than 2,500 years, which clearly dates back much further than the founding of the United States. When visiting the lighthouses in New Jersey it is clear to see that the people that care for these structures as well as the ones who live in or around the area of them are very proud and supportive of them. Some argue that such support and dedication to these lighthouses are easy for those in the area since the state is so densely populated and many more hands are available to aid in caring for the lighthouses. Whether or not this is true, New Jersey has done an excellent job of taking care of these historic structures that people the world over seem to enjoy.
Something that is also noteworthy about New Jersey Lighthouses is the fact that they are some of the most heavily photographed lighthouses in the world. This is largely due to the fact that the state has quite a spectacular coastline, so just about any photo taken of a lighthouse will end up turning out good because of the natural backdrop. Many people love lighthouses and get peace out of looking at them because of the natural elements that more often than are associated with them. Without even having a lighthouse in sight, both the Delaware river and Atlantic ocean are quite spectacular to look at during any time of year. Therefore, when you put the above mentioned things together a long with all the other elements that we haven’t even touched yet… it becomes pretty clear why so many love New Jersey Lighthouses.
