Tybee Lighthouse

Tybee Lighthouse on a Beautiful Summer Day

Tybee Island, Georgia

The Tybee Island light station resides a pleasant 18 mile drive east of Savannah, overlooking Georgia's Atlantic coast and the mouth of the Savannah River. The facilities have been beautifully restored to their original condition.

Tybee Lighthouse Balcony

Climbing to the Top

Admission can be gained for a modest fee, and this allows one to climb all 178 corkscrew steps to the top of the lighthouse. Here's the family on the balcony with Tybee and the Atlantic Ocean in the background. The Fresnel lens and bulb rest on the level above the balcony and were not accessible to the public during our visit. Our older son got a small certificate of accomplishment from the caretaker for successfully climbing all the way to the top on his own.
