Michigan is known for its natural beauty, and because of its Great Lakes and vast shoreline, it’s home to more lighthouses than any other state. Some are still very much in use, while others sit as reminders of times past. Many lighthouses are off-limits to the public, but we’ve chosen 10 that are generally open in the summer (check the website above each photo to plan your travel).
Pack up your camera and hit the road! Staying for a while? Make sure to check out our map of must-visit small towns up north.
Want to see some lighthouses up close in Detroit? A replica of the Tawas lighthouse stands in Milliken State Park, and the William Livingstone Memorial Lighthouse stands at the eastern end of Belle Isle. Make sure to walk out and check out the exterior of the Art Deco marble lighthouse.
