If you are un the area this is a must visit and worth the price for tickets. Money spent goes to a good cause to upkeep this historical lighthouse.

Nothing special, but a charming little lighthouse, off the beaten track in the center of Lake Michigan's Gold Coast. Sugary fine, white, powdery beaches and dunes here are a delight to explore.
