  • lighthouse tour was interesting, but the views were outstanding as fall colors were in place. Definitely a nice stop while driving along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

  • Absolutely fascinating and the view is breaking, it felt like we were in a scene from a movie!!!
  • 8 dollars per person when I came in 2nd of April. I love this place, it's fascinating how the people lived and built at time. There is a little museum explain the story, a theatre with a movie explaining the origins, trails to walk around and the light house which you can enter but then you need to book in advance and it's a guided tour (cost extra too). There is also a little shop to buy souvenir which is cute. I love this place, but one tip, it's super windy up there in the lighthouse so be aware.
