The Most-Photographed Lighthouse In The State Is Just A Roadtrip Away From Cleveland

There’s something about lighthouses that is enchanting – even magical. Their life-giving lights once guided ships to shore, or otherwise warned boats of areas that were rocky or dangerous. Today, many of the traditional lighthouses on and around the Great Lakes are retired and have been replaced by more modern fixtures, but that’s certainly not true of all of them. In fact, one lighthouse on Lake Erie has continuously operated since 1822. The Marblehead Lighthouse is the most photographed lighthouse in Ohio, and if you’ve never visited, it’s a lovely destination that merits a road trip from Cleveland. Pack some snacks for the road and buckle up, because this destination is going to blow you away.
