‘NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS’ further stated that the attraction opens at a great time, with a New England Fall and the changing of the leaves boasting beautiful scenery – not to mention a Patriots home game against their peer team the New Orleans Saints coming up in Week 5.

The “lookout” atop the Lighthouse will remain open 12 months out of the year for fans of all ages and abilities to enjoy the experience, with access provided by an elevator to the top of the 218-foot structure.

Standing more than 22 stories above the playing field, it serves as the tallest non-traditional lighthouse in the United States and a new symbol of the region at New England Patriots and Revolution games.
