“Beautiful and Relaxing!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We love the lighthouse. Such a throwback to a different time. Substantial upgrades have been made to the grounds, with the addition of benches and beautiful flowers and foliage. Obviously many people have generously given their time and money to make this place a better experience for visitors. Thanks to all of you for doing this! It was beautiful and relaxing! It never gets old.

“Pit stop on a nice day”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

If you didn't arrange a lighthouse climb first, then at least you're able to enjoy the viewing garden and get your feet wet in Lake Michigan. It's usually too cold to actually swim there.
Sometimes the Fog Horn Museum is open. It's one room but gives a bit of history.

“Beautiful lighthouse on the shore of Lake Michigan”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Wind Point lighthouse is located on the north side of Racine, on the edge of Lake Michigan.

It is kept in excellent condition by the maintenance staff and offers many great photo opportunities.
