“Timeless and beautiful”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We read the reviews on this lighthouse and planned our visit. Lots to do here as there is shopping & restaurants nearby. We love history and the stories associated with lighthouses. The day was just perfect and the people here are so friendly.

“Worth the Climb!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The view at the top of the lighthouse was well worth the climb. Got a lot of great photos of the island and ocean from the top. I would have liked for there to be more exhibits related to the lighthouse discussing its construction, lighthouse keepers, mechanization, etc.

“Lightehouse”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is a self guided tour. The staff are very well versed on the history of the lighthouse. It's not a bad climb to the top and totally worth the trip up.

“Quaint Beautiful Lighthouse”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

One of the quaintest lighthouses I have seen. It is located in the Village of St. Simons and creates gorgeous photo opt scenes. You can go up in it and read the history or just sit and view it in the park or go buy local author Eugenia Prices book on the building of it and loose your self in a beautiful story.
