This was just a quick and random stop on our way to our next hotel reservation. We enjoyed the history inside and views from the top of the lighthouse (it's a narrow walk up!) of Lake Superior. Our 7-month-old had a blast, too, so don't...More

We stopped here specifically for our niece. She's never been this far north, so we wanted to share it with her. It's been a few years since we've been here and it was nice to see the monument honoring the Edmund Fitzgerald.

We so enjoyed visiting and looking at the great displays. Thought the cost was a little pricey but if it goes to the upkeep then I am ok with it. You can walk right down to The Lake Superior beach. We spent about an hour...More

We visited this area late Sept. 2017. Not being from an area that has lighthouses (Colorado) we were pleasantly surprised how interesting everything was. It was very hot the day we were there and we had our dog but were told she could go in...More
