Marblehead Lighthouse is beautiful and a visit is usually tranquil and serene. It has a small picnic, park area. It is open in the summer months for tours but decorated for Christmas or at night under the stars it is a beauty any time of the year. When the lake is frozen, it is particularly beautiful

Dogs are welcome there, also. There are... More

The Lighthouse and the surrounding area are one of our favorite places to visit. The rocks are fun to climb on and it is enjoyable to just sit and watch the waves... More

Sometimes you can pay $3 to go up the stairs to see the view from the top. Local buses come here with elder... More

Great place and had my wedding here in 2014. Has a great view across the bay of cedar point, I mostly go for the cedar point fireworks on the 4th of July. A must see when up this way!

On our way from Cleveland, Oh to Ann Arbor, Mi and (as we had plenty of time and it was a beautiful day) took a detour to Marblehead. The Lighthouse wasn't open, but it was decorated for Christmas (in reds & greens) and looked amazing against the blue November sky. Definitely worth a visit and take some sandwiches and drinks...
