Mission Point Lighthouse has an incredible shoreline with a beautiful beach for visitors to enjoy.

Even on the busiest days at the lighthouse, you can find a private nook overlooking the Grand Traverse Bay not far from the main attraction. This is a great place to hang out and swim in the lake on Old Mission Peninsula. I really love this spot to enjoy leisurely, but it’s also a favorite spot of mine to bring people for our sessions. Connor asked for a location with trees and water. He is a lover of the forest, while Rikta is usually gravitating more towards the water and loves the beach. I shared a list of locations with this being one of them. We knew Mission Point Lighthouse was perfect for Connor’s proposal to Rikta while they were on vacation in Northern Michigan.
