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...

Great scenic view and a great spot for photography and picnics. Go when the lighthouse is open for tours.

A place of history and beauty. As some one born in Ohio and has traveled a bit its nice to see things like this light house standing tall still a guiding light for those traveling the Lake.

My husband and I have lived in west end of Ottawa County all our lives but never ever visited the Marblehead Lighthouse until we retired. Such a gorgeous lighthouse and such a magnificent location. We have been to many lighthouses throughout our nation and truly this is in the Top 5. The entire area is well maintained and offers many... More

This was a little out of the way on our route home but well worth the stop. I love visiting and photographing lighthouses and this one had the full package of a well maintained setting directly on the waterfront -- not all lighthouses have a view of the water from the ground. The museum and life-saving station buildings added to... More

Not much to see on Marblehead but this is a landmark with beautiful view of lake Erie islands. Great Pokemon stop with lots of Pokemon and 5 stops with 2 gyms

Beautiful place on Lake Erie with a view of Cedar Point in the background. Wasn't open when we visited, unfortunately but still a very picturesque area.
