The boardwalk itself is a nice view of Lake Michigan. If you want to get to the lighthouse up close, the pier near land is just concrete rubble and takes some maneuvering to get over. I recommend the pier only for the adventurous, die-hard lighthouse enthusiasts, or fishermen.

We visited the Manistique lighthouse before we stopped at the Big Spring. I love lighthouses so this was a must see on our vacation. The beach was pretty too.

We loved talking a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk with our friends and their dog. Beautiful scenery.

Well thought out design with several parking areas throughout town. Some washed out areas from recent heavy rains, but very accessible for wheelchairs etc. Signage along the boardwalk gives helpful information about local history, and nearby places to visit.
