“perfect views of the harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

114 steps to the top. 3 dollars for the entry. Gift shop at the top as well as upon entry. Located next to multiple restaurants, shops and of course to catch your boat rides to see the dolphins or to go fishing. Excellent views and a nice breeze at the top.

“Nice view and interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

It is worth the cost of admission and the climb up for the pretty view and the historic facts and artifacts that you see on your way up.

“Looked really nice, nice picture spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Went here on our way out of town. Decided not to spend the $4/ person to climb to top since we were in hurry. Should have gone early in week and morning. The harbour area is really nice to walk around, playground and great water views. Will be going back to make climb to the top.

“Just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

First of all it takes $6 per car just to get into sea pines which is where harbour town is located. There are some shops and a couple restaurants but nothing spectacular. Don't waste your time going up lighthouse nothing great. If going into sea pines go over to salty dog. That area is way better.
