Beautiful scenery!!

This was a very nice scenery and photo taking spot. Right on Lake Michigan beach. Nice little slice of history to check out.

Can't beat the price and the always friendly people in the free but small museum. Great pictures on sunny or cloudy days and easy access to the lakefront, although not wheelchair or handicapped friendly.

Make sure you check to see is the lighthouse is open to climb before you go. It's not open very often and was not when we went. Still the grounds were nice to walk around and take photos. Very quiet and relaxing.

It is all preserved and restored. The Lighthouse is majestic. The caretakers house is Wind Point's Police Department. The Fuel Station still stands, and the Foghorn Building is now a museum and gift shop. The people are just the best and so helpful. They are knowledgeable and they even volunteered to take of picture with the lighthouse - no selfie... More

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
