There are several places along the lakeside drive. We did have time to see many, but did stop and talk a walk up to this by way of hunting a geocache.

Discovered the North Point Lighthouse on tripadvisor and decided to visit. Many locals did not know about the lighthouse, which surprised me. Its a beautiful spot slightly away from the main city. The gentleman at the lighthouse gave us a thorough tour of the museum before we went up the lighthouse. You need to wear plastic shoe bags to protect... More

We were on a untapped tour and stopped by to visit this area. Besides the lighthouse there is a wonderful walking trail and many beautiful houses to view

Thank you for coming to visit our lighthouse, and the surround historic Lake Park built by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1893. We are nestled in a wonderful neighborhood, and our easy -- and interesting -- access to Lake Michigan via the north and south ravines makes a day visit that much more of an unusual adventure. We hope you'll return... More

Nice building and history. Scenic location and serene environment - worth the short walk from the road to see it.

This lighthouse is in a lovely park overlooking Lake Michigan - it's a wonderful place to stroll - in the park as well as the neighborhood with historic homes - and there's a path down to the lake. If you're there on a Sat. or Sunday afternoon, take the time for a tour of the lighthouse. It is staffed by... More

Smart cities take care of their landmarks. This is just one around Milwaukee that is worth visiting. While there, take time to stroll the beautiful path behind it with scenic views of the lake. Then take a slow drive around the neighborhood and admire the gorgeous old homes that are so well taken care of.

What a lovely spot. The history is interesting and it is lovingly restored. The parks on either side are well worth the travel as well.

Located adjacent to a full scenic view of Lake Michigan, the North Point Lighthouse area is a unique place to go to, especially if you have an interest in taking pictures. Would recommend.

Very nice park and lighthouse. Too bad the hours are limited -- it wasn't open when we were there, so we only got to see the outside. Had a nice walk down to the lake and along the shore. Very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Thank dsegleau
