Open only on Sundays we called to make your reservations, they have a small museum and garden area to walk around and enjoy the view of Lake Michigan.

This was our second visit. We had a lot of time to kill, but hate the cold weather. Although we only spent about five minutes on the pier outside the lighthouse due to the lake winds, it was so worth it. It was very cold, foggy afternoon. The actual pier was covered in ice from the water sprays, along with... More

There is a beautiful view. but then the food comes and it was a big let down. The food was ok. Could have been alot better. The wait staff really wasnt helpful. They acted like it was a real effort to bring you extra cocktail sauce. Better staff and a new cook and the place has alot of potential. if... More

One of the most picturesque places in the area. Great views, landscaping and history. I would recommend a trip up the stairs to the top for the incredible view.

We made a special visit to the area to catch a Sunday when a tour was taking place. Beautiful area and great views from the top. Nice small park on the lake as well. And it is a very nice part of town for a drive. The tour days and times are very limited (at least they were when we... More

We read on Trip Advisor that Wind Point Lighhouse was #3 of 14 attractions in Racine, thus made a point to visit. Beautiful place, well maintained gardens though it was fall and not many plants were in bloom. Also the Fog Horn Museum was closed due to the season according to the sign. Very quiet place and nobody else around.... More

I made reservations to climb to the top of the lighthouse. I liked the fact that this lighthouse is not to tall. The tour guides gave a good history of the lighthouse. The day I climbed to the top of the lighthouse was a perfect day to take the tour. You could clearly see out for several miles. The fall... More

The Wind Point Lighthouse is a beautifully maintained landmark and rightfully the most popular tourist attraction in Racine County! The grounds are open all year for enjoying Lake Michigan views and breezes. There is an excellent Fog Horn Museum/Gift Shop open during the summer season. It is possible to actually climb the 144 steps to the top of the lighthouse... More
