This was our first time to both visit and climb up inside of a lighthouse. The tour guide was very informative in explaining about the history of the area & the lighthouse itself. Even as we climbed up the stairs, she would pause to explain significant features. The view from the top was absolutely breathtaking & Lake Huron was dangerously... More

If there's a lighthouse on the way, we stop and climb it! This one is not all that tall but offers a beautiful view of the river and bridge between USA and Canada. Our host at the top was most friendly and offered all kinds of interesting info about the lighthouse. Closed toe shoes are a must. No senior rate.... More

What a nice surprise to find this very old and well preserved lighthouse in Port Huron, Michigan. The helpful gift shop staff arranged for us to tour the grounds, watch a video and climb the steps to the top of the lighthouse. Our guide answered our many questions and allowed us as much time as we needed to see everything.... More

We stopped by here to take the tour and it was wonderful and very informative, our guide was very sweet and answered anybodies questions. Lots of history, nice family tour if you have children, Hubby went up the lighthouse stairs and loved all the views. You need closed in shoes to take the stairs. Cost is about 7bucks per person,...

I have been here twice and will go back again. We have toured the whole grounds and learned the history of all the buildings and we have also walked up the steps to the top of the lighthouse. The view is breathtaking and everybody we encountered was very friendly!

Nice afternoon trip for the family. Lighthouse and buildings were nice. Great view of the lake and nice sandy beach. Staff were very polite and helpful. Worth seeing if you are in the area and want something to do for an hour or so.

Great weekend getaway to catch a little History, Art, Music and more on the shores of beautiful Lake Huron. The Fort Gratiot Lighthouse is the central monument to a bygone era, amidst the amazing skill of artists and musicians. Don't miss the well stocked Gift Shop for a nautical keepsake.
