Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

The Mackinac Point Lighthouse served as a navigational beacon to boats traveling through the Straights of Mackinac from 1890 until it was replaced by instrumentation on the new Mackinac Bridge in 1957. Today, the restored lighthouse is open to the public.

Admission includes a guided tour of the lighthouse tower (as space is available), viewing of the keepers' quarters, a movie about shipwrecks in the straights, and a shipwreck museum to complement the movie.

Climbing the 203 steps to the top

The Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse served as a navigational beacon from 1887 to 1970. It has since been restored and is open for public tours.

We came. We saw. We climbed.
