Prejudice
Aug 2021 • Solo
Rude sales associate in gift shop. Asked for proof I served in the military to receive discounted ticket to climb lighthouse. She did not ask MEN for proof of their service - assuming they served simply because they’re MEN.

Replica of Lighthouse Keepers Dwelling
Aug 2021 • Couples
Small museum housed in the same dwelling as a small gift shop. The museum had nice displays and provided a thorough history of St George Light.

The gift shop was small and not well-stocked. The sales associate was not exactly the most welcoming or helpful woman. Hoping to find a local shop where a photo, print, or painting of the lighthouse may be purchased.

There was a sign requiring visitors to wash hands prior to entering. The bottle of hand sanitizer was EMPTY.

Great History of the Light
Jun 2021
Very nice museum and displays. So great that the light was rebuilt after being destroyed. Unfortunately we weren't able to climb due to stormy weather but hope to try again on our next visit. Friendly staff and a modest gift shop.

Fun thing to do

Great little outing with kids or as a couple. It is now our family tradition to do this when we come. You also get a great view of the island.

It's getting easier
Jun 2021
I really don't like the ladder at the very top. It makes me nervous, but my teenagers peer pressured me into going up. I always like it when I get to the top. I figure it I do it enough times I will over come that fear! The staff is always very friendly.

St. George Island Lighthouse
Jun 2021
Over the Bryant Patton Bridge unto St. George Island, then you get out of car. You now have to climb 92 wooden spiral stairs and an eight rung metal ladder. Now you are in St. George Island Lighthouse built in 1833. I enjoyed the view, Susan did not, nor did she like the climb. But she liked the Museum a little more, and she bought out the gift shop.

Great view and backdrop for pictures
Jun 2021 • Family
Great backdrop for pictures. It worth noting if you go inside the lighthouse at the very top there's a short ladder going through the top level and the hole is just a little small, but you can squeeze thru. The view is worth it.

Beautifully restored piece of local history. The museum is also worth a visit. Climb to the top of the lighthouse and enjoy beautiful views.

Always Go!

We love the lighthouse! There are 92 stairs & a ladder to get to the “light”. The climb is so worth it! The views are incredible! We love the gift shop/small museum. The staff is always friendly and helpful, a wealth of information. They have a well run system so we can continue to go up during the pandemic.

Kids would love to climb stairs to reach the top. It is easy to find, and the museum docent was very informative and friendly.
