The North Point Lighthouse is a great visit to stretch your legs and walk the path behind the site with views of the lake. The history of the lighthouse reveals how things change over time.

I enjoyed walking the grounds and the park area near the lighthouse during my city tour with Untapped Tours. The sights are nice from this location.

I enjoyed walking the grounds near the lighthouse. The view of Lake Michigan from the lighthouse was beautiful.

The off its visited the North Point Lighthouse, and since it wasn't busy, we got a very enjoyable personal tour. The museum part of the lighthouse has a couple of lanterns as well as a nice description of how lighthouse work. In addition, there are portraits and stories of the lighthouse keepers and a pirate ship plus the lake. For... More

Saw this on the Untapped tour and while it was nice to see a lighthouse and the waterfall, it would not be worth a trip solely to see this unless you are into lighthouses. It is unique that the lighthouse was separated and added to so it is now taller.

Driving along the lake, suddenly there's a pristine white lighthouse that looks like it's always been there. It wasn't open when we were there but you can look in the windows. You never know what you'll find in Milwaukee.

Brilliant setting for a 100yr old fixture, bright white and well kept up, on the bluff overlooking Milwaukee's beaches, and fronting a lot of mansions along the bluff edge.

I'm a lighthouse buff, so I was absolutely thrilled with my visit to this lighthouse. The nonprofit that restored the buildings did a wonderful job. Also, the docents at the museum inside the keeper's house were very knowledgeable and cordial. I loved this lighthouse and wish I lived closer so I could go visit it again. I just wish they'd...

We stopped at the lighthouse during a Land and Water tour of Milwaukee. It was nice to look at and take pictures in front of, but we weren't allowed to go inside. Not sure if it is even an option. There is a nice bridge you can walk out on which overlooks Lake Michigan, but be prepared, it is tad... More
