Grays Harbor Lighthouse reviews
It only costs $5 and a tour guide tells you about the history of the lighthouse. This is the tallest lighthouse in Washington and the 3rd in the USA. It's 135 steps, when you get 2/3 of way up... more »
Across the street from the Lighthouse Bistro (or vice-a-versa). Great opportunity to see the sights and get a bite. Was cold and windy on our day so it wasnt a deep visit, but still a nice monument. more »
This was absolutely amazing!! I have always wanted to visit the inside of a light house and today way my lucky day!! The attendants were very nice and full of information and history! The lighthouse is so interesting with intricate details and the light and story behind it were so interesting and impressive to see in person. That was by far the most interesting stop on our trip!! Well worth the hike up the 135 steps!!
I had a BLAST learning all about this lighthouse during the tour. It's only $5 to get in and you also get a discount at the maritime museum with proof of purchase. The guides here are very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was fast, less than an hour, and I got to learn all about the bulb, lense, architecture, and mechanical parts of the house. 10/10 you should go!
