I'm not one for heights, but the lighthouse is definitely worth the climb! Reasonably priced, and the grounds around the lighthouse are nice to tour as well. Beautiful spot for photographs! Especially if your willing to climb! ;)

This is a must see if you like local history. They need a larger gift shop as it does get cramped inside.

We visited the Tybee Island Lighthouse and is very impressive to see. We have seen many up and down the Atlantic coast and the Tybee Island lighthouse is near the top. It's a great photo opportunity. Even if you are not staying on Tybee it is worth the drive over from Savannah to see it.

Wat a pretty lighthouse with the friendliest staff. Cute gift shop and well worth the 178 steps to the to to see the amazing views. on a rainy day it can be quite windy at the top but worth it to see the view!

Tybee Island Light house has a tour and a museum. Right across there is a fort with all the bunkers and the Mason's even have a lodge there that they meet at. There is a lot of history here and various markers. It's right on the beach with a little snack shop to rest and have a beverage.

Great place to spend some time. History buffs will enjoy this one. We passed on the climb to the top, but I am betting it was a great view.

Very well maintained and fun to walk up to the top. Great views and history. Loved it. There are also benches on the ground outside in case someone in the group doesn't want to climb the stairs.
