Destination Lighthouse: Treasure Map for USA Northeast


Lighthouses are a universal symbol of hope, strength and safety. They are not only pieces of history along our coastlines, but also idyllic scenery for the perfect day on the water, sailing from NYC, Montauk, Stamford CT, or Cape Cod.

Every year on August 7th, we celebrate National Lighthouse Day - the day we honor the Lighthouse Act signed in 1789. To get you in the spirit of this festive day, we put together a treasure map to guide you to the crowned jewels of the coastlines. For each of Sailo's top destinations, we've provided you with numerous lighthouses and piers within discovery range of your boat. Pictures simply don't do these landmarks justice, so harness your sense of adventure and explore these destinations!
