    Lighthouses are throwbacks to a time without GPS, when they served as crucial beacons on dark nights. 

    And today’s their day.

    It’s National Lighthouse Day, and the folks at the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood invite you to celebrate 224 years along the shores of the Hereford Inlet.

    Until 5 p.m. today, enjoy music, food, a children’s activity tent, special guests, and exhibits.
