“Wind Point Lighthouse - a Maritime treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

The view from the top is fantastic. If you like history and climbing the spiral staircase, watch for the tours that are conducted by the preservation society. Reservations are required.

“Keeps pulling me back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

As odd as this sounds, this is like the neighborhood lighthouse. It's a city icon, perfectly maintained and very well visited. You can tell that those to come, love to be there. The light isn't open to the public for tours as other lights are. It is for special occasions, though. You can picnic, collect rocks, watch the waves, bird watch, walk on the beach, etc.

“Great spot on Lake Michigan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

This lighthouse is just north of Racine on a rounded peninsula, it's very peaceful place with a tiny museum on the grounds, its low key and beautiful.

“very pretty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

It was closed, so we couldn't go in. But it's easy to get to, the beach is gorgeous.
