  • It’s impossible to see a lighthouse and not stop, no matter where our travels take us. We’ve been here a handful of times, including when my son got married here in October ‘15, so it’s even a more sp...  more »
  • We always stop here but no longer go in. I just love to take pictures of the lighthouse. The day we were there, the parking lot was crowded and the picnic tables were full of folks just enjoying the a...  more »
  • We were fortunate enough to be in the area when the lighthouse was open for tours, during the Marblehead Lighthouse Festival. The tour was informative & the views from the top were nice. It is a beaut...  more »

  • Really enjoyed our visit to Marblehead Lighthouse today. The tour was fun and the grounds were so beautiful. If you are in the area, I highly recommend it. However, the tours only run from noon until 4 daily. Came early, but it was so beautiful, I didn't mind the wait. Next visit, we're bringing a picnic as there are ample picnic tables available.
  • Beautiful view, great place to stop on a road trip and stretch your legs. Lovely little lighthouse with a museum house (inexpensive), restrooms, picnic tables, and binocular stations. If you search the rocks carefully, you can find fossils. Dog-friendly. Popular. If you're going long-distance, get off the toll highways between Sandusky and Toledo, take Route 2 along the coast and stop here off Route 163. It's not far and ends at Toledo, but it's worth it. There's also a giant shark and a Muffler Man on Route 163 for roadside-americans.
  • Love going to the lighthouse. I have done the lighthouse tour. The staff is very friendly and informative. And the fishing is always good. Never know what you might catch.
  • Awesome place to visit! Great view great staff. Well worth the $3 to go to the top! Lots of steps but still worth it.
  • A diamond in the rough! One of the most beautiful places I've ever been and it's right in our vicinity. Beaches are beautiful and immaculate. Vermilion is just minutes away and breathtaking as well. Quaint in EVERY way. Businesses and homes alike are all kept in perfection. Not far away is action packed Cedar Point. I didn't want to leave, just so much to do and see. One thing's for sure...we'll be back next season for an even longer stay!
