The New Canal Lighthouse

What people are saying:

The shape of this lighthouse is very special, more like a small building. Lake Pontchartrain originally had a canal leading to the city center. Later, the canal was filled, and the lighthouse still penetrates into the center of the lake, equivalent to a trestle bridge. It is now a small museum.

    Rented a car to see the lighthouse and it was closed. Sign said they should be open on Monday, but nope they were not. No sign saying they are closed for the day.

    Not sure you can visit this attraction

    You can pass this on the Lake Front around Landry's Seafood, very nice structure, it was damaged badly during Hurricane Katrina, but restored after and looking very nice.

    Scenic lighthouse along the lake

    Sadly I didn’t get to see if you can go in, but this is a pretty lighthouse on the shoreline of lake ponchatraine. Lots of folks exercising, taking a stroll or just enjoying the area.
