Wow! Between the beautiful landscaping and historical information and items! This is a must DO in Racine. ALSO DO NOT FOTGET THE RACINE ZOO! We did not go into the museum or lighthouse. I think there is a fee. No charge to park and look around outside , with plenty to see!

If you go to Racine, WI, you need to visit the S.C. Johnson Company campus, Wingspread (one of the Johnson family homes), and the Wind Point Lighthouse. The latter two are very close to each other. On the shore of Lake Michigan, this blazing white tower is a gorgeous site on a sunny morning.

Self guided look at the grounds, buildings and history it played with navigation. Great picture opportunity, reservations for weddings.

Very nice museum/lighthouse. Has access to Lake Michigan. Clean bathroom too. If you like lighthouses this is a must stop. Also, near the ritzy part of Racine.

I stopped here during a tour of the area in June. The lighthouse and extra buildings provided a nice historical place to visit. You can go all the way down to the beach at Lake Michigan and take pictures. Tours of the lighthouse are available the first Sunday of the month from June to October, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00... More

The Wind Point Lighthouse is open on the first Saturday of May through October, so we were very fortunate to be there on July 5th of this year (following a great parade and fireworks show in Racine). The lighthouse docents do a wonderful job providing history and meaning for what you'll see, and the tour ends with the opportunity to... More

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.
