“So gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Love this lighthouse! It's one of my first things that I have to go see when we get into town. Very historic and just awesome. I have an 8x10 framed photo of it hanging in my office at work.

“One of the many beautiful lighthouses to see in Michigan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

When my husband and I go to Michigan every year we always drive down to the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse. You can actually go inside and take a tour.. We like to go down and sit on the bench to watch the sunset. There is a gazebo nearby and a great view of the Mackinac Bridge A must to see. And if you have time take go down to the lighthouse in the early morning then take a stroll over to Fort Michilmackinac Well worth the walk and the fee to get inside.

“Generally interesting but too much money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

It's an interesting view of the bridge and a bit of history; however, the ticket price is too hight for a place that you can wander through in about 15 minutes.

“History lives - with re-enactors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Delightful experience with young re-en-actors who described accurately the lifestyle of the lighthouse in Mackinaw. Close to town relieved a lot of usual problems faced by lighthouse keepers, with schools and shops nearby. It was a prime selection for lighthouse keepers and is well worth the tour. Beautiful setting looking out a the Mighty Mack bridge on one side and the town on the other - quaint and historical. Good combination.
