Those who are familiar with the North Shore Highway may be noticing a change: Highway 61 no longer runs passed the overlook that allows stoppers-by to view the historic lighthouse.
But here is something may not be widely known: The overlook is still there, ready for you to stop by. As your heading south on the highway from the main State Park entrance, take the first left. It’s a little loop off the highway and there it is:
There are no signs to indicate that it is there. And it’s much safer and calmer than it used to be. In the two times we’ve visited we’ve seen only one other car.
Next time you’re up there, go check it out!
