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.

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. At least once a year the Lighthouse is open for visitors to make the arduous climb to the very top. I am differently-abled and the... More

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. This is a pretty spot to take... More
