Sable Points Lighthouse Tours

I've always been fascinated by lighthouses and they always look stunning with the blue water and blue sky as a backdrop. I've had the opportunity to climb a lighthouse and peer out from the inside and it was amazing. 

I was recently in Ludington, Michigan where there are two lighthouses (with others not far away), but I was too early in the season to have a chance to get inside. However, there are four lighthouses that are run by the Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association that can each be toured. They are:

BIG SABLE LIGHTHOUSE

LUDINGTON NORTH BREAKWATER LIGHT

LITTLE SABLE POINT LIGHTHOUSE

WHITE RIVER LIGHT STATION

You can climb each lighthouse for $5 for adults and $2 for children. 

The Big Sable Point Lighthouse will open for the season May 8 and it will be open daily from 10 a.m - 5 p.m. through November 4. This year it turns 150 and you can celebrate during the Michigan Lighthouse Festival in Ludington August 15 - 27.

The other three lighthouses open May 26 and each is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each with different closing dates for the season.

The Ludington Light is visible from downtown Ludington and accessible by pier. We had hoped to walk out on the pier for a closer look, but the winds that day were pretty brutal and waves were crashing over the pier, so we weren't able to walk out close to it. It still made for some pretty pictures from the shore.
