“Light house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

There is a nice playground with shade by the light house that is free. Not worth paying to go into the light house. It is not tall enough to get a better view then you can see from the ground.

“Christmas Lights”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

There weren't that many lights. If you want to see lights, visit the Fire Station off Highway 278. There was ice skating, but other than that it was sub-par.

$3.50 to climb the lighthouse.Interesting pieces of history about Hilton Head as you climb.They have a gift shop at the top and you can take some great pictures of the surroundings.There is a webcam positioned at the top where your friends can login (they give you the address )and see you.An interesting place to visit.

“The view is reason enough to go up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

This lighthouse was never a working lighthouse, but we thought it was worth the climb. Interesting facts and pictures about the area are scattered on the walls on the way up. The view from the top is what you're paying for. Linger a while at the top on a beautiful day. It's worth it. I think we payed 3.50 per person. 5 year olds and younger are free.

“OK..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

The drive to Harbour Town was beautiful .. you can stop by ruins, see beautiful golf courses and low country scenery. Harbour Town lighthouse and bay is just ok.
