Take The Rare Cape Romain Lighthouse Island Tour To Visit Two Isolated Lighthouses Along The South Carolina Coast

Are you a lighthouse fan? South Carolina is home to eight fascinating lighthouse structures. Some are still in operation, but most are not. Yet, they’re all filled with mystery and intrigue. If you’re embarking on a whirlwind lighthouse road trip along the South Carolina coast, you’ll find that the state’s two northernmost lights are accessible only by way of a water vessel. And even if you do have a boat, gaining access to the inside of the lights is impossible – except for four times a year, when special tours are conducted by a local company.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
