Arts & Museums
Paul Elyseev and Thomas Stevens launched the Hot Sand Glassblowing Studio as a unique concept for family entertainment on the Jersey Shore. Engage your creative side in fun activities that lend a crash course in glass-making techniques like blowing, casting, fusing and slumping. Visit this studio space and gallery, and watch as the team of local artists design one-of-a-kind pieces while allowing the raw material to take its own course and shape its own character. Marvel at original creations from fascinating thematic displays that find inspiration in the city. Don't leave without taking home an aesthetic souvenir.
The Navesink Light Station or the Twin Lights, known for a pair of beacons is a non-operational lighthouse that now functions as a museum in Highlands, Monmouth County. The lighthouse stands 246 feet (75 meters) above sea level and is a part of the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail Route. Tourists can go on a tour of the lighthouse, enjoying the stunning panoramic view from the top or have a look at lighthouse equipment in the museum. The volunteers are friendly and informative, making for a wonderful experience.
