Whitefish Point Lighthouse

Attraction details
Reviewed April 7, 2013

One of many historical Lighthouses in the State of Michigan, Whitefish Point is one not to miss. Imagine the high seas and the gales in November, the Edmund Fitz on there final voyage and you cannot help becoming awestruck at the power and wonder of the Great Lake Gitcheegumee.

It's not open in the winter, but you can still view the lighthouse and get down to the beach, which in itself is worth seeing! The waves freeze and form icy terraces that you can (carefully) explore, chunks of crystal clear ice are scattered over the beach, and the froze whorls on the surface of the water are beautiful. It's a whole other experience going to the beach in winter! Go at sunset!

Great place to learn about the old days of Great Lakes shipping, and the problems they had in surviving them.

If you have ever wanted to see a unique lighthouse, this is your chance, Located on the shores of Lake Superior, you will learn a lot of history about the shipwrecks of this massive lake. The building and grounds are immaculate and the staff is very friendly.
