My Town Spring Lake: Hotel employees begin second leg of lighthouse tour

SPRING LAKE, Mich.—This weekend, two employees of the Grand Haven/Spring Lake Holiday Inn will continue their journey to visit nearly 60 lighthouses lining Lake Michigan.

Marketing Director Kendra Higgins and Event Coordinator Molly Tuma began their lighthouse tour last fall, when they ventured north to cities along Lake Michigan, including Ludington, Traverse City and Mackinaw.  Starting Saturday, March 29, they’ll begin the second leg of their journey, visiting lighthouses in southern Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin.  The pair will use the West Michigan Tourist Association’s Circle Tour and Lighthouse Map as a guide during the one week trip.

 “We can’t even begin to sum up what the first experience was like; going from lighthouse to lighthouse you truly start to recognize their grandiose beauty, the historical significance they add to the surrounding area, and everything the maritime life stands for,” said Higgins. “The first trip opened our eyes to how much our magnificent coastline really has to offer and now we’re looking to spread that knowledge and same Pure Michigan experience full circle around Lake Michigan.”

Higgins and Tuma will document their lighthouse visits on the hotel’s blog as well as on social media.  They also plan to stop at hot spots along the way.
