The New Presque Isle Light was built in 1870, at Presque Isle, Michigan, east of Grand Lake, and sits on the namesake peninsula. It is one of 149 lighthouses in Michigan, more than any other state. There is a nice gift store

We went for a late drive and stopped at the lighthouse. Unfortunately the office was closed so we couldn’t climb the lighthouse.

Tower climbs and gift shop originally managed by a private company, then by the Presque Isle Township Museum Society, now by the township. A fun experience, never a disappointment.

This lighthouse is the tallest that you can climb on the Great Lakes...which allows for fabulous views!! Once you climb the 130ish stairs to the top and catch your breath, you can take in the tip of the Presque isle peninsula! Well worth the climb
