Piece of History - and still working!

We enjoyed our visit here - There's a beautiful rocky beach you can wander on, and a nice gift shop as well as the lighthouse.

There are a few other exhibits on the grounds that are worth seeing. The lighthouse itself looks cool and is worth the climb. Only bummer is that you can't go all the way up. The gift shop is wonderful and has many great postcards and other things as well. Also, the view of the Lake is fantastic from up there!

Excellent restoration of this 110 year old Lake Superior Lighthouse. Staff in period dress showed us around and actually gave us time to explore. Really glad we went.

Fun to see a real working lighthouse. The grounds are dotted with extra things to see including the wheel house from the Frontenac. They also have a B&B on site. Friendly staff and great views. Lots of history.

We stopped here while driving along the North Shore. Cute little lighthouse, and the grounds have picnic tables. There are trails around too. We walked to the end of the pier and watched a freighter come in, which was very interesting.

We travel a lot and it's fun meeting people. But the nice lady at Two Harbors is from Corpus Christi, Tx. I'm from Houston Tx, so it was great learning about Two Harbors from a lady with a Texas accent. I felt right at home. Two Harbors is a working lighthouse. The gift shop has a lot a great gifts...
