These 7 Michigan Lighthouses Are Especially Enchanting During The Wintertime

Michigan is full to the brim with beautiful lighthouses. These towering structures stand as beacons along the shores of our beloved Great Lakes, offering guidance to passing boats and serving as reminders of our maritime history. In fact, Michigan is home to an estimated 124 lighthouses, though it once housed even more. During the winter months, there’s something extra magical about checking out these unique structures. Here are seven Michigan lighthouses that are sure to enchant during the cold season.

Please note: while many Michigan beaches and lighthouses remain open during the winter, remember to use caution during your visit. Ice and snow can make for dangerous conditions along the lakeshore.
