Just a note for those visiting Whitefish Point. If you are comfortable wearing a light jacket down in Paradise, you might want to bring along a heavy winter coat, stocking cap, gloves and a scarf at the point. Winds are normally stronger and it is usually much colder due to being surrounded on 3 sides by Lake Superior. Beautiful location, though. Great beach for beachcombing, birding, hiking. Shipwreck Museum is very nice. Bird Observatory gift shop is tiny but worth visiting, The point is a great birding hotspot and you may see birds up close you won't see elsewhere in Michigan.
