We try to visit St. Joseph a few times a year. Always worth the time. LOVE the downtown shopping area. The beach is nice and the carousel is worth a visit... Wish I could live in this beautiful and gracious town.

Admire them from Silver beach. Don't spend the money to park to walk out to them. Up close they are rusty and sealed up so you can't even go in.

Unable to specifically rate the beach for St Joseph, however the lighthouse were also a big attraction for me. In and around the lighthouse area is more commercial with the museum and also some stores, etc, but just a little further along the beach, it is much quieter, and infinitely more beautiful, with great views back along the beach to the lighthouses. Either way, it is a lovely area, and the lighthouse is very picturesque.

We decided to take a relaxing stroll down the pier to see the light house. Well....it was more revolting and warranting of a shower than a relaxation method. There was a pile of feces at the base of the lighthouse. It looked like people had just kept adding to that pile for a while now.

The lighthouse is rusted and has graffiti everywhere. There are fish hook and dead fish all over the pier. If fishing is going to be allowed, they should monitor how the pier is treated.

If one of Saint Joseph's main attractions is going to be this historic landmarks...put some pride and money into it. Seriously gross.
