We took a quick stroll along the Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park boardwalk, snapped some photos of the beautiful Lake Erie shoreline and the two lighthouses.

With Finnish heritage, a relaxing beach vibe, and the two wonderful lighthouses, I can’t wait to return to Fairport Harbor to explore more of this charming Ohio village!

Visitors can walk along the breakwater to marvel the lighthouse from afar, but cannot tour the privately-owned lighthouse.

Fairport Harbor Lighthouse was originally built in 1825. After years of deterioration, the lighthouse was rebuilt in 1871, to stand at sixty-feet tall.

The Fairport Harbor Historical Society founded the museum in 1945, and now welcomes visitors to explore Ohio’s maritime past.

I would love to visit Fairport Harbor again to explore the lighthouses, Finnish Heritage Museum, and the local restaurants and shops of this lakeside town.

Although we didn’t have much time to explore Fairport Harbor, I still wanted to share this charming village and encourage others to explore more of Ohio!
