Yesterday, my family and I went to Port Huron and stopped at the lighthouse and gift shop. The people were so friendly! The gift shop prices were reasonable and our tour guide was great. He presented the tour in a way that kept your attention. He even interacted with my 4 year old making him feel every bit as grown... More

We like to find historically interesting things on our journeys. This was a good find. We were unable to tour the lighthouse due to time constraints but it would have been worth the trip. There is a tour to the top- remember to wear covered shoes...noflip-flops allowed! The location is easy to get to and affords beautiful views of Lake... More

Needing to get across the bridge from Canada to the USA early to avoid the long queues before travelling to Detroit airport, we cast about for somewhere to visit across the border, not too far from our route. It didn't have to be a lengthy visit, but somewhere to occupy us for a couple of hours, tops. The US border... More

We are from Canada and visit Port Huron often but for the first time, we made some stops to check out the town. The lighthouse was very cool and we were amazed by the view. Our tour guide was fantastic. My son was a little nervous doing the climb but survived it. It is definitely worth the visit.

We loved Fort Gratiot Lighthouse and grounds. The tour takes about an hour or an hour and a half, depending on who's giving the tour. Beautiful grounds and well restored lighthouse. Spectacular view of Lake St. Clair and Lake Huron. Not to be missed!!

We stopped overnight in Port Huron on the way to Maine. I am always drawn to lighthouses, so when we saw this one we definitely wanted to visit. We rolled up later in the afternoon on a Thursday and it was really quiet. Our personal and very knowledgeable docent took us through the tour and up the lighthouse. The stairs... More

Wonderful tour of lighthouse living from the past. The climb up & down the lighthouse stairs quite narrow and wouldn't recommend it for those with knee, heart or breathing issues. Beautiful view from the platform at the top of the lighthouse!

We visited the lighthouse with our children. We took the tour, it is $7 per person, but a family is $30 (however 4 and under were free). The manager on duty saw we had paid for our tour however there was a wait for the next group. She saw we had young children and offered to take just us on... More
