My calves are still feeling the burn two days later from the 178 steps in this 150'+ lighthouse! Tickets also get you into the keeper's house and the museum in the battery across the street, great deal!

Wonderful lighthouse and museum. It was our first time in Tybee, so the museum filled in a lot of blanks. The staff was very informative and friendly.

We stayed on Tybee at a friend's weekend house. It was superb and the lighthouse is one breathtaking sight in the afternoon for the sunset and sunrise!
