Nothing like a walk out on the Ludington North Breakwater Pier. Feel the fresh air coming across the lake. See the Badger come into port at the end of the day. Stretch out your legs before your trip home.

If you are looking for a great place to see the sunset over lake michigan, this is it. Located right off the beach at Stern park. Beautiful setting and they offer tours. The light house is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers.

It was a fun walk along the narrow causeway to the lighthouse. The lake had a nice rolling wave action going, so we'd get a refreshing spray from time to time. The lighthouse was interesting, but the walk back where we could view the beauty...More
