Climb 178 Steps To The Top Of Tybee Island Lighthouse In Georgia And You Can See All The Way To South Carolina
The Tybee Island Light Station & Museum is fascinatingly unique for so many reasons. Tybee Island Lighthouse in Georgia is the oldest and tallest lighthouse in the state for starters, built back in 1736 and standing at 145 feet in height. The purpose of this light station was to help guide mariners to a safe passageway to the Savannah River. But beyond that, when you climb the 178 steps to the top of the lighthouse, you’ll not only get 360-degree views of the island but also see far enough to South Carolina.
