I could understand if you're not much into lighthouses how making a special trip to see Morris Island Lighthouse might be considered disappointing. You cannot actually go into it or even go right up to it - it is located just off the beach and is currently undergoing restoration (or raising money for the next phase). BUT, I loved it! If you're out to Folly Beach anyway, it's worth the short drive to one end of the barrier island to go see it. It's free, so not much risk involved. You have to park at the end of the road, kind of in a cul-de-sac. Then it's a short walk on a paved road/path that ends and becomes sand for the last few steps. The walk is maybe @1/4 mile, maybe a little more. The beach is a pretty little stretch of sand, rocks, and sea grass that makes for pretty pictures. There is an information paper located in a clear box (much like a realtor's box) at the parking area - it has historical facts about the lighthouse and also has information about how you can donate money to save the light.
