The Harbour Town Lighthouse was built as a Bilboard for Sea Pines. It is not really a light house, it is not really a musem. What it is is a multistoried gift shop which they charge $3.50 for the privilege of shoping in. The 'Camp...More

It's just something you have to do once at HHI . The view was worth it nice to be on the light house and for once looking at others looking at the lighthouse. We could see two weddings that day . Yes it has a...More

It was a good activity with the kids. $3.00 per person seemed a bit much, especially after just paying $5.00 to get into the area. The information on the landings looked interesting but it was WAY too hot to spend the time to read it....More

My husband and I visited Harbour Town in July 2008. It was our first trip to Hilton Head and although our vacation was great Harbour Town was our least favorite part of it. We mainly went to check out the lighthouse and to go parasailing....More

We first attempted to enter the area on bikes--not allowed to ride bikes unless you are staying in that area. What? they would rather have car traffic and pollution in that area than people riding bikes on the paths that are there specifically for bike...More

Like the other reviewer said you have to pay $5 toll charge to get to the place, then hope to find parking. The price of the lighthouse doesn't seem like much but when you get up there and are able to maneuver through the overcrowded...More

This is at the end of Hilton Head, on the shore of the inlet. It has a fake lighthouse that is nonetheless sort of quaint. There are a number of tourist shops that sell trinkets, T-shirts, etc. There's a Christmas store. It's setup like a...More
