Take a day and visit one of our majestic lighthouses. While touring the area stop and have lunch at a local establishment. Share your pictures on Facebook and just enjoy the beauty of our lighthouses and our wonderful Lake Erie.

The Port Clinton Lighthouse is the last remaining timber
frame pier light on Lake Erie. Once common on our inland
seas, only four of these unique structures remain on the
Great Lakes today. In operation from 1896 to 1952, the Port
Clinton Lighthouse has been fully restored to its original
condition, thanks to a dedicated group of local volunteers.

Lighthouse lovers everywhere now have rare opportunity
to roam the interior of this unique structure while
knowledgeable docents explain the importance of the pier
light to local navigation and the duties performed by the
lighthouse keepers of yesteryear. Climb the wooden spiral
staircase to the lantern room and view the fully functioning
ffth-order Fresnel lens, then walk out onto the gallery deck
for a spectacular view of Lake Erie and its famous islands.
