The water is very blue by this walk to the lighthouse. You'd think you're in the carribbean. The pier offers a nice walk out to the lighthouse. Watch the waves though! Depending on the wind that day the water may come up on the pier.

If the waves aren't crashing, be sure to walk out the breakwater to the lighthouse and visit the museum exhibits inside the lighthouse. Stop and talk to a fisherman, see how they're biting. Marvel at the glowing translucent blueness that is Lake Michigan, and absolutely come back at dusk for the greatest sunsets to be photographed and remembered for years... More

We passed up a free wine tasting for sunset pictures and were not disappointed. It is about a 1/8 mile walk along the jetty to the light, but worth the walk and view. We were rewarded with a wonderful sunset.

Waves were lapping over the walkway when arrived at the pier. It was a beautiful sight. Nice pictures on a cool morning

We enjoyed our after dinner stroll along the breakwater out to the lighthouse. Wonderful lake and sunset views. It was not very crowded the evening we were there.

We were in Stearns Park so we had to go out and see the lighthouse. Supposedly, the #1 light in Michigan to visit. It's a neat lighthouse and wish we could have stayed for sunset as we hear it's a beautiful place to watch one. We'll come back sometime so we can.

We went to Ludington to see the Lighthouse. Our daughter built a replica of it for school. Staff was amazing. It is a memory our daughter will have forever.

We walked back to the lighthouse and paid the $3 to walk to the top and look out. There was a very nice lady at the top who had some history on the lighthouse and was very good at answering questions.

The lighthouse is fantastic when the waves are crashing in. We were there at the perfect time for good photos and lots of wave watching.
