Nice place with a good history lesson. We toured the lighthouse which was cool - but not for those that can't handle heights.

We stopped here to see the lighthouse and were lucky enough to catch the first tour. For $3/person, you can get a little history of the lighthouse and take the 77 steps to the top where you will enjoy a great view of Lake Erie....More

We were there before it opened, but it was beautiful to see from the outside with a view of Cedar Point. The family enjoyed exploring the area in the trees behind the lighthouse near the water.

The trip to the lighthouse was to appease my fiance`. But I never could have imagined that I would become so fascinated by the trip. I learned so much about not only lighthouses in general but the remarkable history of this particular lighthouse.

I am new to the Great Lakes so I cannot help with your route. However, I can tell you that the Marblehead​ Lighthouse is worth seeing. There are also other attractions close by that wouldn't take up a lot of time but also... More
