Pretty lighthouse next to attractive marina. Good views over the surrounding coast, particularly from the top. Nice shops although many closed in January when we were there

We thought that we would get a little more for our money than just walk up a few flights of stairs and get a small, unimpressive view. We weren't impressed with the tiny lighthouse, or the expensive gift shop it housed. Maybe it is better when the temps are warmer.

You get a nice view from the top but its not very high, good job because I dont like heights! There is a small shop at the bottom but not too much to buy really.

We took some time to visit while staying in Hilton Head. The day of our visit was beautiful but cool and breezy. Great place to visit with tons of photo opportunities. Looking forward to returning in the summer or at least when the temps are warmer.

Inside as u walk up the stairs lists History/pictures on the walls; small museum and gift shop. Very neat experience w/a 6 yr. old child to be able to walk in a lighthouse. On top, awesome views.

Perfect place for a photo op! It's worth the admission price to walk up and take in the glorious view! There are also lots of nice stores to browse through around the lighthouse!

Harbour Town Lighthouse is a nice little shopping district. Parking is hard to come by. There are some rocking chairs where you can sit and relax and do some people watching, witch is nice.

Worth the four dollar admission fee and the 144 steps to the top. Beautiful views of the harbor, golf course, and ocean. Take a camera.
