We climb the lighthouse each time we go to HHI. My kids have all done it as well, even my 2 year old. There are interesting artifacts and articles to check out on the way up, detailing the history of the island, and the view from the top is gorgeous!

Great for history buffs. Pictures and stories on each level all the way up... The lady at the top was very friendly. (Sabine I think her name was). The evening view was just as lovely.

The view is great. Learn about the harbor, history and close by islands too. Easy walk up, fun and really a must see / do while in Harbour town!

$3.75 per ticket and tourist traps all the way up. ATM, penny press, puh-lease. It is hot and crowded. It isn't a lighthouse with an interesting history. Skip this and go enjoy Gregg Russell's free show.

$3.75 per person is not a high price, but I'm not sure if climbing up the Harbour Town (fake) Lighthouse is worth it. It is not air conditioned and was a bit crowded and stuffy. There are displays and informational placques on each landing, but it was difficult to read the information. since the stairs and landings are small and you are often interfering with people going up and down.

At the top, there is a cramped gift shop and the walkway around the top was also crowded. The view was OK, but not terribly impressive.
