You take the little service road to the Coast Guard gates, park on the street (free) and take the little walkway path.....This is a brief but scenic path past the harbor ant toward Lake Erie. The lighthouse is up a slight hill but, it has thin ramped paths in the stones. There is also an anchor, a buoy, the old... More

I was able to see 6 lighthouses in the Niagara-on-the-lakes area. Small, but added to my list of lighthouses viewed.

Excellent view from Erie Basin Marina. An area rich in history and uniquely preserved. Soon to be accessible from Fuhrman Boulevard in 2012.
