Experience what is considered to be one of the most picturesque lighthouses in the United States when you visit Split Rock Lighthouse. Sitting on the edge of a cliff that juts out into the water, this National Historic Landmark offers photo opportunities as well as historical background. Take the tour of the lighthouse, which brings you into the keepers' houses and up to the top, or explore on your own with the help of plentiful signs and posted information.

Put Split Rock Lighthouse on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Two Harbors road trip planning site.
