The view from this wind point is absolutely beautiful. We did our wedding pictures here in September of 1994. I believe you can go in the lighthouse now but not real sure.

Looking for a great place to discover the history of Racine,WI? This is a great place to start. Very informative and explains how Lake Michigan plays an important part of Racine's history. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the tour and understanding more about the city where their great grandparents, grandmother and mother grew up.

Privately owned by the Village of Wind Point ever since the Coast Guard ceded it to them. I believe there is a "friends of the wind point lighthouse" organization that may have a website. A federal organization has recently granted $xx,xxx to help pay for some historical maintenance needs to make sure that it remains solid and doesn't deteriorate. Has... More

The caretakers have done a wonderful job keeping it nice. Wedding pictures happen to be a big deal. I would recommend taking some pictures. I have ones from all seasons including a double rainbow over the light house.

A beautiful drive along Lake Michigan leads to the lighthouse on Wind Point in Racine. A golf course on one side of the road and the lake with the lighthouse grounds on the other side. A very peaceful setting, that welcomes you to park in the parking lot to take in the views. A grand, old lighthouse that is well... More

Visited the Wind point lighthouse which is easy to find. Gift shop is only open on the weekend and the tours of the lighthouse are very limited to a few days during the year. The schedule is posted on the web. It was a beautiful day and enjoyed the sun and water.

It was a great bike ride from the lake front to the lighthouse. A ride along quiet neighborhood streets to country roads to the lighthouse. The grounds were beautiful kept and a walk along the beach searching for that perfect smooth stone. The gift shop was open with a very knowledgeable person to answer any questions about the lighthouse. We... More
