We always stop here but no longer go in. I just love to take pictures of the lighthouse. The day we were there, the parking lot was crowded and the picnic tables were full of folks just enjoying the area.. Stop by

Beautiful little park right on the water. Lots of shoreline to wander around on and you can see the Cedar Point roller coasters across the water, which was neat.
