At the end of an 8 mile scenic drive is lighthouse, historic cabin and beach. Scenic views including sunsets. Not busy like so much of Traverse City. Well worth the drive.

The Old Mission lighthouse is absolutely charming. Sometimes you can go inside, if you hit the hours right. I'm fairly certain a small fee is required should you wish to climb the light. Watch out for the flies!!!

We stopped here for our halfway point on a 42 mile bike ride. The portapotty was foul smelling, but did the job. A decent amount of tourists here going in to see the lighthouse. The view of the bay was very nice.

This is worth a visit and the drive there is beautiful. We bought a Christmas tree ornament in the museum as a moment of our visit.

Took a scenic drive along the peninsula on a sunny afternoon. Stumbled upon the lighthouse. It's a cool place with history. It was under renovation when we were there but had an awesome view!
