Road Trip: Shores & Islands Lighthouses
Helping maritime captains navigate the Great Lakes for centuries, lighthouses mark coastlines and show safe entries to harbors. They are also popular among shoreline lovers for their unique beauty and photo opportunities.

With road trips soaring in popularity right now, let’s take a drive to see six of the area’s lighthouses. While this can probably be accomplished in one day, we suggest you take your time and spread it out over two days to get the full coastal experience.
Start Coasting - Ways to Get on the Lake
One of the most important natural resources in the Shores & Islands region is our great Lake Erie. Not only does it provide fresh drinking water for the area, but is offers hours of recreational fun, from swimming to boating to fishing. While our Lake Erie beaches are popular for swimming and sunbathing, there are other ways to enjoy this natural wonder as well. Want to get out on the lake? Here are a few ways to start coasting!
