There isn't much at the end of the pier, but it's a nice view of the shoreline and lake side of the Third Ward. River Walk can start or end here.

Best lighthouse I've ever seen by far. Very beautiful 10/10 a very quality house of light. I thought a picture was necessary although it doesn't truly capture its beauty. I loved how the vibrant ruby red of the light house contrasted the deep bellowing blue of the ocean. The lighthouse lifted my spirits just as the breezed lifted the sails of the sailing ships. I am however a bit confused who Greg is and why he felt the audacity to vandalize this masterpiece of innovative architecture. Otherwise the trek was well worth it.

My wife loves lighthouses and has visited over 50. She really enjoyed seeing this on in Milwaukee. It’s on the river walk, which makes the visit even nicer.

Walked down through the Third Ward to find this lighthouse at the end of the fishing pier. It probably looks even better at night, but it was nice to see in daylight when you could note details. It marks the Milwaukee Harbor & sits near Henry Maier Festival Park. Very relaxing to just sit on its concrete base with water all around.

We are touring the Great Lakes and seeing so many wonderful lighthouses. This one did not disappoint. Easy to find with a walking path near by.
