Michigan Lighthouse Festival Motor Coach Tour

August 2, 3, 4, 2019

The motor coach tour includes a visit to the Huron Lightship Museum. Lightships were used as a floating lighthouse anchored in areas where it was too deep, expensive, or impractical to construct a lighthouse. Her history will shed a new light on the US Lighthouse Service as she was the last lightship on the Great Lakes, serving until 1970 and the only lightship of the Great Lakes to be designated a National Historic Landmark.

A visit to Port Huron would not be complete without stepping back in time at The Thomas Edison Depot Museum which is housed inside the historic Fort Gratiot Depot, built by the Grand Trunk Railway in 1858. This is the actual structure where Thomas Edison worked from 1859 to 1863 as a "news butcher" pedaling newspapers and candy to passengers riding the train. The exhibits portray Edison's multi-faced story wan will inspire you to apply your own creativity as you learn about his life and his inventions.

Friday afternoon finds the tour aboard the Huron Lady II as they cruise south down the St. Clair River. During our narrated tour you will enjoy the serene view of the river accented with the white sails and wakes of the pleasure boats and ocean ships. Fort Gratiot Lighthouse from the water will provide an excellent photo opportunity for all.(Snacks for purchase and cash bar available on board)
