  • Sea Pines Preserve and the docks in Harbor Towne are closed due to the hurricane. But Harbour Towne Lighthouse is open. It's small, not many steps to climb. But it does offer nice views of the area. 
  • The price was silly it was so high for a little lighthouse, but the kids really wanted to go up. A nice view from the top, but definitely not worth a second trip. It seems that the staff was letting a...  more »
  • This lighthouse was built by a developer for the area. The lighthouse was made of wood and had wooden steps that made me suspicious. The views were nice at the top and the history written up on differ...  more »

  • Ok, so we loved Harbour Town during our Hilton Head visit. We spent a lot of time there and on our last day we decided that we should go ahead and see the Lighthouse Museum and check out the view from up top. One thing to know, you gotta be able to climb the stairs! Not a problem for my family, but if you are planning you should know there is no elevator! So, the good, going up the stairs there were landings where you could read more about Sea Pines and the Lighthouse, which seemed cool. I didn't get to read it because I had a 2 year old itching to get back to the playground or go to the beach! The view on top was kind of cool but not something I'd really pay for. If I had the time to read each of the exhibits going up I think it would be a bit more interesting, but as a Dad engaging with an energetic 2 year old, that wasn't gonna happen! So, maybe a 4 star if you can engage with the exhibits and a 3 star attraction if you are bringing kids!
  • I'm not a lighthouse fan boy - but this is a pretty cool piece of history. it is amazing how essential these were to boats and harbors in history. This lighthouse allows you to go up to the top and walk around - great place for pictures and there is even a small gift shop if you are looking for trinkets.
  • Fun. My sons (5 & 7) enjoyed the climb and the view. Modest "entrance fee" was worth the experience. A nice gift shop at the top awaits.
  • There is a nice view from the top of the lighthouse but, I'm not sure it was worth the $4 admission charge. The lighthouse is only 5 stories high so, no dramatic view. Rocking chairs outside at the bottom are a nice touch.
  • A nice place to walk around, grab some ice cream and enjoy the cool breezes from the sound. Touristy, but shop and sit and just realize how beautiful the island is.
