Grand Traverse Lighthouse
Grand Traverse Lighthouse 9 miles north of Northport on the Leelanau Peninsula is still open to the public. It is always a thrill to climb these old beauties and imagine what it must have been like over 150 years ago. The views are as terrific as ever! It is open starting May 1 from noon to 4pm. In June the hours are expanded from 10am until 6pm. Know what's cool? You can sign up for their Keeper program and sleep in the lighthouse keeper's quarters in exchange for learning about the lighthouse and conducting tours. Sounds like a great way to dive into history.
