This is not really my favorite type of thing, but my husband loved it. If you like history, it is well worth it.
Once you've had your fill of the beach, you'll almost feel compelled to visit the lighthouse you've admired from the sand. Tybee's lighthouse is educational and accessible. For $9, you can climb to the top, tour the lighthouse keepers cottage and summer kitchen, and visit the small museum across the street. It's one of the few tourist attractions on Tybee,... More
Like many locales, Tybee Island is blessed with a fine lighthouse, and a group of dedicated people who work to preserve it. The museum and buildings are quite interesting, and you can climb to the top of the tower to see for miles around - or just admire the view from the ground.
after we took a 3mile walk up the beach to go to the lighthouse, we got there and found there is a charge to tour it...needless to say we took a few outside pics and walked back.

There are many displays to help explain the history of the lighthouse, plus personnel to answer questions. The living quarters... More
172 stairs and well worth it. On top of the lighthouse, you can see South Carolina! The other buildings on the site were also very interesting. The cost also included the museum, which was nice. Kids prices are discounted so go visit!

The people who staff the lighthouse and museum were so welcoming and helpful. Walking up the lighthouse is a must... it is a beautiful building and the views are spectacular. We were even invited back for the champagne toast and ribbon cutting for the newly renovated lighthouse. It was great to take part in a local celebration of such a... More
