“Cute town. Great playground”

The Frankfort Light
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Frankfort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Town has Great playground area for kids. Nice shops and restaurants. We drove up from beulah,Crystal lake.
Worth the day trip. The same bagel shop in Beulah is in Frankfort. Good sandwiches and value. Locals raved about the fusion resturant, will have to try that next time.
We're told the main street is only open during summer months. They really cater to tourists and summer residences. Friendly folk

Stopped and wondered on the beach, as it is a beautiful little park area. Didn't go out on the pier, as it was a bit too cold, and the waves were a bit high, crashing over at times. Gorgeous fall day to visit, though.

The breakwater is walkable to the lighthouse. Nice place to visit.
I would not want to try walking in on a day with high waves through.

This nice little lighthouse (though nothing spectacular) sits at the end of the shopping district at the beach area on the main road in downtown Frankfort which is a quiet, charming, and beautiful setting.
In fact, the light is just a few blocks from downtown so one can easily walk to this location. There are also plenty of small shops and eateries in town (ice cream and fudge too)... and these too are all within walking distance of each other. There is also a nice little park right in the middle of town which has public restrooms and plenty of play equipment for the kids to enjoy. If you wish to stay in the area, we walked by a few bed and breakfasts and I believe maybe even an Inn just blocks from Lake Michigan and I am sure that these could be easily located on the internet.

As always, be safe and enjoy your travels

Not much to see or do. The breakwater out to the light can be very dangerous. Be sure to pick your time carefully.
