We enjoyed our quick visit. Relatively small area—very picturesque. We visited in the morning so it was very peaceful since there were not many people around because the buildings don’t open until noon.

We happened to really enjoy this outing as much as previous Spring, Autumn or Winter trips. Regardless, it's quaint, peaceful and relaxing year round and plenty of good eats within 10 miles. The islands to the north west and view Cedar Point due east.

Beautiful views, easy to stroll around the park area. During the summer, you can climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse and experience the beauty of seeing the islands and cedar point.
