Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven is famous for its historical lighthouse and carousels. In the 1920s, an amusement park operated 10,000 carousels here, and few of them have been preserved up to our time. The New Haven Harbor Lighthouse, also called the Five Mile Point Light, dates back to 1804. A 20-m (70-ft) tower was built from local sandstone with solid brick interior and spiral granite staircase up to the lantern loft. The Lighthouse Point Park is beautiful at any time of the year, but during the holidays it's especially impressive due to dazzling light displays.
