This Lighthouse was built in 1870 on the northern tip of Old Mission Peninsula. It has always been one of my favourite places to visit and spend time at. The tour of the house is good and culminates with a view from the light tower....More

Beautiful drive on a day that wasn’t great for beaching. Would be gorgeous in the fall. A bit underwhelmed by the lighthouse itself—very low and small. $4 to go up, kind of on the honor system. Spent about 40 minutes there. Could bring beach gear...More

The beautiful ride on Mission Peninsula culminates at the Lighthouse. Can’t get much prettier than the view of Lake Michigan and the beach is clean and inviting. Large parking lot, swimming allowed, and a lovely beach. Great for kids to have fun!

Highly recommend this drive to the lighthouse and coast. There are beautiful wineries and homes along the way. It is tranquil and looks like scenes from a movie.
