From here we visit Wind Point Lighthouse, the oldest and tallest working lighthouse on Lake Michigan. This 112 foot structure was built in 1880 to warn ships away from the shallow waters off Wind Point. Wind Point Lighthouse was constructed in 1880. The Village of Wind Point has maintained the lighthouse and grounds since 1964, and uses the old keepers’ quarters as a village hall and police headquarters.

3 KRINGLES / MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM / CITY TOUR / PABST MANSION: No trip to Racine would be complete without a trip to a local bakery for the famous Danish Pastry known as a “kringle”. We will start our day by visiting a bakery and enjoying a cup of coffee, a kringle and learning the history of this tasty treat. We then travel to Milwaukee to watch the “wings” open on the Milwaukee Art Museum. The Pavilion contains a movable, wing-like extension that opens up for a wingspan of 217 feet during the day, folding over the tall, arched structure at night or during inclement weather. It is such a marvel to witness!
Before lunch while in Milwaukee, we will have a Step on Tour Guide spend some time with us to share the history and points of interest in this city. We have lunch at a local Brewery. After lunch we tour the Pabst Mansion, home to Milwaukee’s pioneer brewing family and five archbishops, this mansion has been restored to its original splendor.
