I was only in Hilton Head for the afternoon and wanted to do something with the kids. We went an walked the 114 stairs to the top of the lighthouse. Be sure to read the stories on the way up including the ghost story of the lighthouse! Bring a quarter to use the machine to look out over the water and at the golf course. Two Pokemon go gyms just in case the kids wanted to know. ;) #PinkyKnowsNaples

Lighthouse had fantastic views with really interesting facts and memorabilia on each level as you climb up to the top. Personally thought it was a tad expensive for what it is but it is an iconic part of the island with great views over the golf course.

Its a good view, not spectacular. Not worth a special trip, but if you're at the harbor, it worth while going up.

not really important. the lighthouse was kinda boring but ok for the price. if you play pokemon go it has two gyms and a couple poke stops and I caught some Pokémon I didn’t have before, and battled in a raid. worth it!
