Although it was a very hot day, we walked to the lighthouse! The children and young adults climbed to the top, while the less ambitious visited the gift shop and museum. Who knew that the lighthouse would have such an interesting history? Fun for everyone...More

this is definitely off the beaten path but St George Island and this lighthouse are well worth an afternoon to explore along with the amazingly beautiful beaches.

Thank you for stopping by our beautiful area. One of the best things about our area is the fact that it is not a typical location and the view from the top of the lighthouse confirms this. Hope you can visit us again.

The tour guide was friendly and informative! Not a bad climb at all. The view was worth it! The museum has a lot of good history in it and the gift shop was adorable. Beautiful landscape and walk way. Great picnic place!

We go to SGI every year for the month of October. This is our 17th year. Always wonderful. Love the fishing and beach. Dolphins everyday. Manatees at the pier. It's just lovely

Beautiful! Not the tallest one I have been in but nice history of the rebuilding and the town. If you like lighthouses it worth the trip to the top.

92 steps take you to the top of this historic lighthouse. This was a family outing with grandparents and everyone had a fun time. Glad we went early as it was a hot climb, but the view was worth every step.
