Went out on the pier the first night in Michigan City. Lighthouse was tiny, but fun to see. We walked out at sunset, and back at twilight. Loved seeing the small dunes by the path as well.

The walk out to lighthouse is nice, pretty. Beach area next to it is large. Large parking area. I would return.

The lighthouse and beach were beautiful. It was a little far for the walk to the lighthouse with no rails on the side for safety.

Great place to visit! Has nice clean large beaches that lead to the lighthouse. Wonderful way to spend the day and watch the sunset.

Concrete pier with no side rails. Rowdy teenagers running around the lighthouse so it wasn’t a safe place. The walk itself was ok though the scenery is a crowded loud beach. It looks better from a few miles down the coast.

There was a nice bar and grill overlooking the beach i went to and they were hosting a class reunion and birthday party. That place might be nice depending on how large your crowd is. It looked like they allowed outside food... More

There is a nice concrete walkway between the parking lot and the beach that goes out to the lighthouse. Nice walk, you don’t have to get in the sand at all if you don’t want to. Beautiful view just sitting on the benches... More

I believe there was a posted sign of no pets on the pier.
