We were taking a trip around Lake Michigan and I was looking so forward to going to Windmill Island but once I got there, total disappointment set in. It was late in the day in mid June and the place was pretty empty. I went straight to the windmill itself and waited 15-20 minutes for a tour despite several people waiting and three workers sitting around reading. The tour itself was fascinating despite the young woman giving the tour. It must have been at the end of a long day because she couldn't remember the names of things and seemed somewhat distracted during the whole tour. The organ didn't seem to being played although i did hear it as i was getting in my car to leave. The gift shop wasn't much so I was ready to go......which I did. It was only $8 and when I got back to my hotel, I wish I still had the $8 in my pocket. Maybe it was just me but I would think long and hard before I took a whole family here.
