“I love living so close to this beautiful sight!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

My bf proposed to me at the end of the pier, during sunset, and ever since, it's had a special place in my heart, it's also just peaceful watching the waves, water life and boaters passing by.

We took our French exchange student here and the surreal landscape and frozen lighthouse made a lasting impression.

“Great Place For A Visit Winter or Summer”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

During the winter there is a great view of the lighthouse and pier encrusted in ice from the waves driven by the wind. It a great time to take photos. Keep in mind that the ice is very slippery and there have fallen a number people have fallen into the lake and drowned in the winter. The beach in the summer is fantastic. It has been rated by a number of travel organizations as one of the best beaches in the US.

This is a enjoyable walk along the pier. Great exercise and really great views from all kinds of boats on beautiful Lake Michigan to the beautiful beaches and sunrises.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great place to walk, and watch the sunset. Stay off the pier when water is washing over it because it can be slippery.
