When we left Tahquamenon Falls, we spontaneously decided to take a road that somewhat followed Lake Superior's shoreline. We were so glad we did because it gave us a chance to see the Pt. Iroquois lighthouse, an unexpected bonus.
We were excited to be able to go up into the lighthouse, as well as visit the home attached. The girls read something inside the house that said that three families lived there at the same time. I've always thought of lighthouses as being maintained and run by one family so that was quite surprising to me.
The view was worth the climb.
We planned to visit a lighthouse in Mackinaw City (and we did, the next day) but this one was a completely unplanned side trip that we really enjoyed.
