I love lighthouses, and this one is very nice. It has a small museum and gift store. Nicely landscaped and dog friendly. The view is gorgeous.

Even thought I visited on a rainy day when you could not even see the water, the setting is just lovely. The spring flowers were in bloom and the faint scent of Lillie's of the valley filled the air. A lovely place to spend some time in peaceful contemplation.

The light house is close to my son's earlier apartments. We used to go there while on a walk. The beautiful Michigan Lake with blue waters is awe some.

No trip to Racine, Wisconsin is complete without a visit to our beautiful and historic Wind Point Lighthouse. The lush grounds have been the site for many engagement, prom, senior high school, and wedding photos.

During certain dates you can tour the lighthouse. Climb to the top and enjoy the view, or just enjoy it from the beach. One of my favorite places to go in Racine.

I've been here several times to look for shore birds, and warblers. It's a lovely place to look around, and enjoy a sunny day. I've seen several types of warblers here in the spring(common yellow, yellow throated, yellow rumped, etc), blue grey gnat catchers, phoebes, bluebirds, and a nice variety of duck species.

When in Racine, check out wind point lighthouse. It's on of the most senic light houses on lake Michigan in Southern Wisconsin. A great photographic opportunity. T.Ellis

It is one of the oldest lighthouses on Lake Michigan and probably the best maintained. Overlooks Shoop's golf course which is like a mini Whistling Straits except $12 instead of $250!
