Our new releases are here to help ring in the New Year. We hope that you will be pleased with the variety of replicas we have chosen to compliment each area of our nation. We chose to honor the sentinels from Maine to Florida, Rhode Island to Michigan and more. There is something for everyone this season, as Harbour Lights continues the tradition of excellence, with award winning, intricately crafted, distinctive nautical replicas.

Mystic Seaport, Connecticut is one of our new pieces shipping this Spring. We are sure that you will fall in love with this quaint little beacon. You can almost hear the lighthouse keeper's children playing, as the waves crash against the jetty alongside the lighthouse. To get the full scope of Mystic, simply picture a charming town that time has forgotten — a place that preserves the lost art of Americana and nautical heritage. You may have heard of Mystic Seaport in a movie once or twice.

Mystic Pizza and Amistad were both set in the unique little village, situated a few miles from New London, Connecticut.

The lighthouse built in Mystic is an exact copy of Nantucket's Brant Point Lighthouse. It is situated two miles upriver from Noank at Mystic's whaling harbor and is maintained by the Mystic Seaport Museum. Surrounded by amazing, historic boats and ships, this little lighthouse is a sight to see. Next time you visit Mystic, you are sure to go home with many great stories and pictures to go along with it!

Another remarkable replica shipping this spring is Port Clinton, Ohio. The beacon is located along the North Shore of the Portage River and is now on the grounds of a private marina. Visitors are welcome on the grounds during normal business hours. Currently, the lighthouse is home to a restaurant called The Garden at the Lighthouse. Complete with vintage photographs and priceless historical artifacts, visitors of the restaurant lighthouse will surely enjoy the atmosphere and surrounding view.

Be sure to place your orders early for these beautiful new pieces. Visit www.HarbourLights.com for news and product updates or call customer service at (800) 365-1219 for further information.
