Serene, peaceful, beautiful. A lovely place to watch the sun rise over the lake and reflect. The gardens surrounding the grounds at the base are splendid in spring and summer.

Amazing view of Lake Michigan from top of the Lighthouse... very clean and serene... been here 3-4 times... At times, wind can be quite chilly, don't forget to carry a jacket.

Our Designated Driver took us on a little tour of the area and we found this little place with a wonderful view. Especially loved the autumn colours and, with the lovely views and well kept Garden, it definitely made a picturesque spot. With the wind blowing, it could get pretty chilly. Around the area, we were told that this was... More

The lighthouse is in very good shape considering it's age. The grounds are well kept, and has a beautiful garden.

We were taking a beautiful July afternoon to hunt Lighthouses on Lake Michigan and found this. Its a quaint lighthouse, with a beautiful view of the Lake. It was closed when we arrived, so nothing I can say about the inside.

During the summer months, on the first Sunday of the month, you can climb all the way to the top of this 1880 lighthouse. It's moderately strenuous, but the view is amazing! Well worth the $10, very memorable!

Easily accessible. Access to the lake. Butterfly garden that had butterflies and bees. A good opportunity to take pictures of the lighthouse, beach, and grounds!

I truly love the beach & light house area of Racine. This lighthouse is perfect, so very picturesque! The day I visited was quite windy, hence, "Wind Point" However, the surfers we're loving the large waves & created an incredible back drop for this lovely park. Surfing in Wisconsin! Loved my visit.

We were in town for a wedding and took the family out to the lighthouse. Very relaxing to see the well maintained gardens and the beautiful lighthouse... Figure 30 minutes to 1 hour. You can climb to the top of lighthouse the first Sunday of month. Be sure to check if they are open....
