“The most beautiful trails and beaches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

I live out on the old mission peninsula, and I love to drive out to the lighthouse sometimes. There are lots of hiking trails, and the lighthouse itself is way more beautiful than what you can see in the picture.

“Scenic drive to the lighthouse on the peninsula”

Loved the scenic landscape views of the wineries and Lake Michigan. There were a few restaurants along the way as well.

“Bring a Bike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

If you want miles of lightly traveled roads with good shoulders - Old Mission Peninsula is just the place. The lighthouse has bike racks if you want to explore the tip on foot and there are a few little stores around for light snacks & drinks.
OMP is a (foot-powered) biker's paradise.

“$4 to go upstairs?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Just wasn't that exciting...charge to go upstairs, horseflies that bite, dirty water...it's not a bad view - just not that exciting.

“Great history and a little peak back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Lovely drive from Traverse City. Nice beach front. Cute historical cabin on the grounds in addition to the lighthouse building. Staff friendly and eager to answer your questions. Beautiful lighthouse and a small general store. Lots of picture opportunities.
