The lighthouse and its outbuildings were available for viewing at a cost of $8 apiece. There were 4 of us, and we could take good photos of the lighthouse without entering the complex. The gift shop was extremely high on some things. 3-D bookmarks were six bucks.

This was a great lighthouse to visit. They did a wonderful job restoring the grounds and houses. It was windy at the top of the lighthouse, but worth the steps up to the top. My 8 yr old and 10 yr old climbed to the top without a problem.

Built originally in the 1700's, the current version of the light house, and homes of support staff, are updated, and worth a visit, especially when in the Savannah, GA area. Just 17 miles from downtown Savannah, there is something here, (and at the old military battery, across the street), along with the beach to please everyone.

The light house is built in 3 layers, and if you choose to climb the 178 steps to the top, a great view awaits.

A gift shop, show casing local artists' work, and several homes where staff lived are open to visit.
Enjoyable area just to walk around.

The lighthouse and the surrounding buildings have been renovated and are well worth a visit.
Tybee Island has a welcoming laid back feel to it.

A good view and nice grounds. The volunteer workers were very helpful. We only climbed 100 stairs. The total is 178. There is a window after each set of 25 stairs.
