These Are the 10 Most Amazing Lighthouses Around the World

We've rounded up the most impressive lighthouses in the world.

In honor of Maine—the Lighthouse State—we're rounding up some of the world's most impressive coastal beacons. Let's take a look!
By Montana Blue Sperber, Sweet
Where: Pemaquid, ME

Claim to Fame: Commissioned by John Quincy Adams in 1827, this lighthouse is forever memorialized on the state's quarter.
Where: Andros, Greece

Claim to Fame: Off the coast of the port city of Andros, this lighthouse looks like it came straight out of a storybook. The original, which was built in 1897, was destroyed in World War II—luckily an oil tycoon had it rebuilt in 1996.
Where: Norwalk, CT

Claim to Fame: If you notice a slight lean this lighthouse, you're not crazy! A hurricane hit the structure so hard in the 1930s, it caused the lighthouse to tilt.
Where: Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

[post_ads]Claim to Fame: First lit in 1915, Peggys Point Light is one of Nova Scotia's most-visited tourist destinations. A popular post office was run out of the wooden structure until 2009, when it had to close down due to mold (but you can still explore the grounds and take photos).
