  • Point Betsie Lighthouse was the perfect stop for a cool and windy day. You can buy tickets (adults $5) that allow you to go up in the lighthouse and also visit a museum and the lighthouse living quarters. This would be the perfect place to bring a picnic lunch as the grounds are gorgeous!
  • One of the most beautiful lighthouses in MI! Point Betsie is beautiful to visit in every season. Summer is great - the beach is a small and little rocky but nice to swim at. Winter makes Point Betsie look completely different - I'd definitely recommend a visit at least once in winter. The light is open during the summer for tours.
  • Beautiful light house not too far off M22. Closed for season, but you can still get a good view from the coast side.
  • Beautiful sight but lacking a good vibe for tourists. Looks like there are apartments you can rent in the lighthouse. If you happen to be passing by check it out... otherwise don't make a special trip for it.
  • Beautiful! Even in the winter.
