Concrete pier with no side rails. Rowdy teenagers running around the lighthouse so it wasn’t a safe place. The walk itself was ok though the scenery is a crowded loud beach. It looks better from a few miles down the coast.

We visited on a beautiful sunny day. The waves were splashing over the wall, very picturesque. Take plenty of selfies with the lighthouse behind you. It was clear enough to see the Chicago skyline across the lake. Would also be great at sunset. Lovely spot...More

It was a beautiful walk, benches along the way if you need to take a break. We sat for a bit to enjoy the view. We were there on a Tuesday, slowest day of the week, some shops and restaurants are not open on Tuesday....More

Was travelling through Indiana and stopped at the Lighthouse to walk along the Pier to stretch our legs. There are wonderful sand dunes along the beach and the walk along the Pier was refreshing on a very hot day.

The lighthouse and the beachfront have to be the biggest attraction to Michigan City. On a clear night you can see the Chicago skyline. It’s stunning. Every night you will see many people that come out to get a picture of our beautiful sunset with...More
