“Great history, the view is amazing at the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We visited this lighthouse and loved it. The view at the top is amazing, you can see for miles. Price is only $7.00 and is worth it. Tybee island in general is the place to be.

“Was a neat tour bring your walking shoes it is a long way to the top of the light house, but worth it for the view and history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Was a very interesting tour. The view from the top of the light house was great. Takes awhile to reach the top, but the view was great.

“Don't miss this on your visit to Tybee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The Historical Society has done a great job in restoring and maintaining the light house and museum. Take your time and climb all 170+ steps to the top of the lighthouse for a great view!!! I highly recommend this for a must visit while in the Savannah or Tybee Island area.

“A visit to Tybee Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We had some time so we went out to Tybee Island to the Lighthouse. It was a little rainy the day we went but the grounds were very interesting. The light keepers houses were fun to see. Climbing the stairs to the top of the lighthouse was a bit of a challenge, not as young as I used to be, but well worth it. The fee also got you in the fort by the sea so its well worth the price.
