Complimentary souvenirs will be given at each Challenge location. You are welcome to visit any number of lighthouses along the Challenge route, but you will have to visit all mandatory stops to be able to proclaim “I’ve seen the lights!” and collect a specially designed souvenir to mark your accomplishment.

Bonus Lights MAY include TWO beautiful locations:

  • Fort Washington Bell/Light Tower

Visiting these Lighthouses is not counted toward event completion, but will take the challengers to more beautiful Bay Lighthouse locations, earning them an extra event souvenir! *One Souvenir per challenger.
