Rear Range Lighthouse

American in Newburyport

You'll have to climb five flights of stairs, plus a 6ft ladder. And you'll have to bring your own bottle of wine. At the top, you'll dine in complete privacy, surrounded by views of city, sea and sky. The food comes from one of six local restaurants, but the lighthouse location is what makes this a unique and supremely romantic experience.

The reservation fee is a $350 tax-deductible donation to the Lighthouse Preservation Society. The cost of the meals is additional.
