  • Photos of the lighthouse are beautiful! There are restaurants and shopping. All very careful and neat. It is worth to know him.

  • The short climb to the top of the lighthouse was definitely worth the price of admission. Each landing has a selection of artifacts, some dating back to the Civil War, with commentary describing the i...  more »
  • Wish the weather had been better when we visited, but overall, lovely visit. Unique lighthouse constructed with a lot of older wood inside. Views from the observation deck we excellent.  more »

  • This is a "must" when you're in the area. It's super reasonably priced ($4.50/person) and the experience is self driven, so you can take your time. We stopped on each landing and read all the plaques posted and really took the time to look at the pictures and relics placed nearby. Once at the top, there is more to see and learn. The walk around and the views are spectacular. There is also a cute gift shop at the top that offers a bit more of a selection than the one at the bottom. We found some nice souvenirs to take home that we would otherwise not have if we hadn't made the climb.
  • Visiting Hilton Head for the first time with my 80 year old mother. Unaware the lighthouse was having a Coast Guard ribbon cutting ceremony the day of our visit, I was able to climb the lighthouse museum which is so unique in presentation. Climb is easy even for a person with back issues. Great views! The band under the live oak tree was a bonus. Wish they had a dancing stage!
  • Very nice. We lucked out the day we went, and didn't have to pay, to climb up to the top of the light house. The view was great, as you are climbing, there are photos, and all kinds of information, and history, on the walls. There are restaurants, and shops around. There is s gift shop at the very top. You can walk all around the top of the lighthouse, at the top to see the views. Also a small gift shop at the bottom level .
  • Nice area to visit just before the sun goes down. Small fee you can climb the stairs to the top for a beautiful view of the area & take a few pictures. They also have a small gift shop. Its also located in an area with other shops & several restaurants. Most nights they have some type of live music in the pavilion nearby.
  • The Harbor Town Lighthouse is amazing! It’s a beacon that makes memories! From pictures for the family to a lasting impression One trip and you will always remember it! I highly recommend a trip!
