We happened to really enjoy this outing as much as previous Spring, Autumn or Winter trips. Regardless, it's quaint, peaceful and relaxing year round and plenty of good eats within 10 miles. The islands to the north west and view Cedar Point due east.

I love coming here especially because of all the slate rock ledges to sit on while Lake Erie waves lap at your feet. The lighthouse is an iconic local landmark, and there is so much room for everyone to walk around that even when it...More

Beautiful views, easy to stroll around the park area. During the summer, you can climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse and experience the beauty of seeing the islands and cedar point.

A friend and I went on the lighthouse tour. The stairs are steep and open. So, not afraid of heights and the stamina to climb to the top is needed.

Quaint park with the historic lighthouse. Nice place to stop for a picnic. They made the waterfront approachable through the giant stones that protect the shoreline. View to the islands and the rollercoasters on Cedar Point.

We were able to see the outside since the interior is closed for season. We did go up on a previous trip and is a must do while in Marblehead.

We visited during the end of October. Just about everything up there for tourists closes around November 1st. Grounds are open but inside is closed. The roads are good and are not on island.
