Beautiful view

nice view of the harbor and boats below go before sun starts going down or the sun will be in your eyes. After you finish get ice cream below in the ice cream shop.

We've been coming to HHI for twenty years and always visit Harbour Town. Such a beautiful place to enjoy an ice cream and watch the sun set over the marina! Gregg Russell concerts underneath the big live oak tree are great! Our family has lots of wonderful memories here!

Harbour Inn is a cute Area of shops, restaurants and you can even climb the light house. Also, you can board a cruise here as well. Worth a visit!

Took our kids (13, 10 and 5) ... They all liked it - but the whole visit was 20 minutes max. Cost us $16 to climb 114 stairs, buy an overpriced souvenir and head out to the playground.

Shopping is unique. View of the harbor very nice. A very relaxing location. A variety of thongs to explore.

The harbor Tower was an excellent place to go we had a few cocktails and then we decided to go on a midnight Cruise to see the sunset dolphins and fireworks the only things you had to do was pay $6 to get into the place

It was $6 to get into Sea Pines and $4 to go up the light house. It was neat but not worth the price. Souvenirs were outrageously priced. Might be more worth it if you were planning on spending the day there.

If you go to Hilton Head no trip is complete without going to Harbour Town. They have something for everyone, playgrounds, restaurants, shops ,and history. Just seeing the lighthouse brings back so many memories from my childhood. I love showing my girls all the places I went when I was a kid. Some of the same stores have been there... More

Took the family whole on vacation. Loved the museum, and the views from the top. I had never been in a light house until now so I really enjoyed it. The only downside is the price. $16 for a family of 4, plus you have to pay $6 to drive down the road that leads you to it. If you... More
