Did you know that the Great Lake State of Michigan has the most lighthouses in the United States with more than 115 lighthouses? The Lexington House Bed and Breakfast is a central location to see many of these historic lighthouses. A day trip to Port Huron, about 30 minutes south, will allow you to see the majestic 82-foot-high restored Fort Gratiot Lighthouse, built as the first lighthouse in Michigan and the second on the Great Lakes. During the summer months, you’ll be able to climb to the top. While you are there tour the nearby Huron Lightship, which in its heyday served as a floating lighthouse for five decades.
You can find two other lighthouses north of Lexington, Pointe aux Barques Lighthouse at Port Hope and Harbor Beach Lighthouse, accessible via periodic boat tours in summer.
Many of the lighthouse tours include entrance fees, but know your monies are being put to good use to restore these historic icons.
