Beautiful view

Climbed the 180+ steps to the top for a beautiful view. Not a bad climb. There's a landing every about 25 steps so you can catch your breath.

178 steps to the top! Very narrow when you make it all the way up! Great 360 degree view on a clear day!

The line to climb the lighthouse can be a little long, but it is worth it. There are several preserved buildings to tour and admission also gets you into Fort Screven across the street.

There is a lot to appreciate at the Tybee Island lighthouse and museum. We visited the site to climb 178 steps of the lighthouse, but we also ended up learning a lot of great information about the history of the lighthouse, how the lighthouse was maintained and how the lighthouse keeper(s) and their families' lives changed over the years as...

We've been to many lighthouses. The staff was very pleasant and extremely helpful. They offered great tips. The buildings are view at your own pace which can be much more enjoyable than guided tours. Staff was ready and available for any questions and added a lot to our visit. The climb to the top was really rather easy with landings... More

178 steps... Keep this in mind if you have little ones. However, I found this site interesting. It's always nice to visit a place and find out a little bit of history about it. We went the weekend after Veterans Day. Since my husband is a veteran, we all got in free. This was very much appreciated. We enjoyed our... More

This was a really neat attraction on Tybee Island. Great views of the Atlantic shore. Not recommended for those afraid of heights or claustrophobic. Definitely worth checking out! And one of the few places with free parking on the island!

We love lights and try to see as many as we can if in the area. This Light had lots of things to see in buildings and the museum. The cost seemed a bit high $14 per adult.

Can you please tell me who charged you $14 for an adult. Our price is $9 for adults and $7 for military, seniors and children ages 6 to 17. Are you sure you didn't pay for two military or seniors which would have been a total of $14 for both? More
