  • Amazing history and a neat experience. We stayed in the area and saw the light house everyday. We initially didn’t realized we could go inside. When we did, we paid our $5 to go to the top. We walked....  more »
  • We spent a couple of hours here taking it all in. Wonderful gift shop and loaded with history. Make sure to slow down and read about the island while you enjoy the views that the lighthouse offers.  more »
  • Fun, inexpensive little stop. 4.50$/each to climb the 114 lighthouse steps. Civil war info, Cost Guard memorabilia, & golf course history line the walls & greet you at each level. There's another little gift shop at the top through which you can access the outside of the lighthouse for beautiful views of the harbor. Things to know about the area: It cost us 8$ to buy a 1 day pass to enter the neighborhood/ harbor area. There is parking, but this is a popular place so grab a spot quick! You will likely have to walk a few minutes to get to the harbor. Lots of nice shops surround the lighthouse. Some prices are better than others, so beware. One of the restaurants had live music outside that everyone could hear & enjoy. The harbor is lined with DOZENS of red rocking chairs that make for a nice spot to rest & feel the ocean breeze. There are other activities in the area too like a kids' pirate adventure cruise, knee-boarding, horse riding, & probably more we didn't see, but these all cost $$.
  • I've been going here since I was a kid. A small but fun place on Hilton Head island. $8 admission into Sea Pines(cash only, why?🙄)then 4.50 per adult at light house. It's a fun experience. It's better in the evening. You can get some great sunset pictures there.
