We come to the lighthouse every year. The red wood rockers are a great place to relax before or after the short climb to the top. As you climb to the top there are all kinds of golf history exhibits to read and facts about the lighthouse. Small gift shop at the top has plenty of things to buy and... More

If you like light houses, Harbour Town is a great one for exploring rather easily. It is set up with artifacts and descriptive signs up the flights of steps. After you have made your trek up the many steps (which are easy to use) you arrive at the top, which allows you to go outside and enjoy a 360 deg.... More

The lighthouse area has shops, restaurants, a marina, ferry to Savannah, a wonderful play area for children with some of the most remarkable trees ever, and a nice sitting area with rocking chairs for adults. There is live music on occasion, particularly during the happy hour at one of the restaurants with outdoor seating. The restaurants range from casual, modest... More

Great view of Harbour Town Golf Links 18th hole at the top (obviously, if you occasionally watch PGA golf). Bring your binocs for spying on that once in a lifetime birdie putt. Read everything on the way up and on the way down. You will thank yourself when you recall some info on the ride home, or during a trivia... More

Paid the 6$ just to enter the area.You will see boats in a Harbour surrounded by Condos .The shopping area is nothing to write home about.After reading reviews did not bother with the light House.The beach Area was also sub par.No free entry even for bike riders You can see boats in a Harbour at Shelter Cove without paying 6$.

Any visit to Sea Pines you need to start in Harbor Town and if you're industrious you can climb the 114 steps of the Light House for a fee. They do offer a discount for Veterans. The Light House contains a Gift Shop and an ample amount of historical artifacts and historical descriptions about the local history. This is a... More
