Stopped in at the lighthouse on our way to Wingspread. A nicely maintained and restored lighthouse and out buildings. Do take the time to stop into the small museum and chat with the volunteer. There is much tragic history in this great fresh water lake! This made for a pleasant stop -- the lighthouse is only open specific days, but... More

Beautiful scenery with a little history, well worth the visit, especially on a nice day. There is a little gift shop, but no cafeteria, you can bring your lunch box and some picnic stuff and enjoy yourself on the picnic tables on the lake.

If you are seeing FLW's Wingspan be sure to drive a few minutes up the road to see this beautiful lighthouse(great photo opportunity) and a view of Lake Michigan. There is a small museum and gift shop there also, however, we did not have time to see them. In just 10 minutes you can have picturesque photos of the lighthouse... More

If you are able- hike to the top of the Wind Point Lighthouse. For a few dollars- you can have a short history and then take the climb. The view from the top is fantastic!

Stop by the lighthouse during museum hours to enjoy a small sample of "the maritime history of Racine" and Great Lakes history. (Open Daily Memorial Day through Labor Day. Hours: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) It will only take a short while to browse through the small building, unless you're the sort who brings your own knowledge and knows the... More

It was a drive there and at times I thought I was on the wrong road to see this lighthouse the. All of a sudden there it is. It's cool to see a part of Lake Michigan history dating back to the 1800's. They even have very nice restrooms. There is a little place with a beach area where you... More

Always a peaceful visit here. Nice that the museum was open on the Fourth of July too! Pleasant, friendly and helpful staff! Gorgeous view of Lake Michigan.

We found this place a few years ago, and the beauty and serenity continue to welcome us here. It's a perfect spot for a quiet picnic for two, taking in the panoramic Lake Michigan views, and carving out some time to reconnect. Last 4th of July we came here and had a wonderful picnic. Amazingly, it wasn't crowded despite being... More

Beautiful drive & scenery bring you to this "off the road" little piece of history. Delightful & educational. Explains lighthouses, their important need and place in our history and how they worked. I plan to return when the Museum is open. Check their website for times and scheduled trips up the 140 steps to the top. There is a per... More
