Tami and Gary Wylie, owners of Cherry City Honey Farm, have turned their love of beekeeping into a business. They will share their stories of starting a business, and how they use special recipes to make infused or creamed honey. You will make a wax candle to take home. You will also enjoy shopping in their quaint shop. Don’t worry, you won’t be around the bees!

The Marblehead Lighthouse is one of Lake Erie’s best known and most photographed landmarks. It is the oldest lighthouse in continuous operation on the Great Lakes.

Keepers House: One of the first settlers on Marblehead peninsula was Benajah Walcott. After working on a survey team mapping out the Lake Erie region, he bought 114 acres in 1809 and built a log cabin for his family. In 1815 he became the appointed keeper of the newly completed lighthouse on Marblehead.

Before we head home, we will make our last stop at Rocky Point Winery. You will enjoy sipping some wine out on their patio, and snacks will be available for purchase.

Lunch is included at Docks Beach House.
