This pier is lovely and is a very move walk. Their are no tours offered but you can walk up to the first lighthouse. If you are a lighthouse enthusiast this place is a must as are all of Michigan’s lighthouses.

Really Really hard to get a reservation there is a click of people who make a part time job of making sure they are there every year..Beautiful view but very tight on Beach side Holland State Park is a much better value

Always love to walk out on the Pier. Looks like they have just repaved it. Beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Most people smile and say hi as you walk by. Interesting mix of relaxing and energizing.
