“Worth the climb”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

$5 to climb to the top for incredible views. Right in the middle of the island, easy to find. Nice museum and gift shop as well. Nearby access to beach.

“Tight and Narrow but great for kids!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Not accessible for elderly, disabled and overweight people but excellent for older kids. Young kids would need supervision. The steps are narrow and can be slippery if raining. Beautiful grounds though and nice photo opportunity for the family.

“Ocean View Lighthouse”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We loved the lighthouse in St George Island Florida. It sits very close to the ocean and has a visitor center next to it with a very well informed you lady to fill you in on Oyster harvesting history which was fascinating and there is a gift shop. The town is small but has a very friendly feel. We visited this area for the first time and were impressed with the friendly people and scenic choices everywhere.

“Fun stop with great view”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Great easy stop with very interesting local history. Lady running the museum was very friendly and helpful. Was obvious a local because she knew the history and even the backgrounds on the various vendors. Would be fun for kids since you can climb the lighthouse (small fee).
