Discover Lake Michigan Lighthouses
The 2016 Lake Michigan Lighthouse Map & Circle Tour is now available! This free travel map is a complete source for discovering the lighthouses that dot the Lake Michigan shoreline.
This popular map features the entire 1,100-mile Lake Michigan Circle Tour Route through four states, and mapping over 100 lighthouses around Lake Michigan and the Straits of Mackinac. The map spotlights twenty lighthouses and includes pictures of the lights, additional structural details, and special features of each spotlight. Lighthouse fans are giddy with delight that the new map is ready.
The Lighthouse Map Cover features the Grand Haven lighthouses this year, in a photo taken by Walter Elliott. Grand Haven’s two lighthouses were originally painted white when built in 1904, but now boast bright red paint, making them easy to spot. The Grand Haven lights are not open to the public, but visitors are invited to walk along the pier housing the two lights.
This free publication is excellent for trip planning, or to just keep in the car to see which lighthouses your summer travels might bring you in contact with.
