Walking out to see the lighthouses was fun. The people along the pier were both colorful and friendly, a great combination. Took our time and just strolled, probably due to the relaxing sound of the water.

Easy to see from beach. We didn't need a closer look so we opted to not pay to walk up close. Not the best lighthouse I've seen. But a pretty backdrop to the view of lake.

There are actually 2 lighthouses. Although you cannot go inside, you can go directly up to them. The only fee is $5 to park.

A beautiful beach, and drive up the coast to St. Joseph. Even watched a graduating class have their ceremony with the Lighthouse as their backdrop. Lovely to see different towns in their own element of traditions.

There is a Lighthouse Tour Map that shows you where all the various Lighthouse's are located, well worth taking a look. A great feature to the area.

We try to visit St. Joseph a few times a year. Always worth the time. LOVE the downtown shopping area. The beach is nice and the carousel is worth a visit... Wish I could live in this beautiful and gracious town.

Admire them from Silver beach. Don't spend the money to park to walk out to them. Up close they are rusty and sealed up so you can't even go in.
