“Must see.”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

The lighthouse is a must see when on the island. We very much enjoyed the experience and the view form the top. The gift shop, as expected, was very touristy, but had great Harbourtown golf memorabilia. Now that we have seen it, we aren't likely to return unless it is for photos.

“Tourist delight”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Great area to walk around by the ocean, and visit the many shops to pick up a souvenir. The lighthouse is neat also!

“Beauttiful Lighthouse, Marina, Shops, Eateries”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We spent the morning at Harbor Town, the lighthouse, marina, shops, eateries. Fun place to go for 2-3 hours. You pay $5 at the gate to enter Harbor Town, but you can park wherever you need to for free. So, so I sort thought of the fee as a parking fee. :) Took some great pictures here--very picturesque.

“Easy choice on a chilly day”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

We decided to check it out on a cool day. Some interesting history and stories to absorb & a pretty view from the top. Easy way to burn through an hour before taking in some of the surrounding restaurants and shopping. Great park around the corner for kids as well. Nice area!

“Nice for a short visit”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

There are some shops here and the view is nice. I don't understand why they charge $5 to get into Sea Pines. You would get more business at these shops if you didn't have to pay every time you want to come in. The lighthouse was 3.75 per person and provided a decent view of the area. Nothing to write home about, but good for a short visit.
