Tybee Island Light Station & Museum
As you prepare to explore coastal Georgia, head for Tybee Island and check out the Tybee Island Light Station and Museum. One of only seven surviving lighthouse towers from the colonial era, Tybee Island Light Station was constructed in 1736, first lit in 1867, and stands at 144 feet tall. Make the scenic drive to Tybee Island from nearby Savannah and is an ideal way to spend an afternoon on the coast.
The current version of the Tybee Light Station is the third in its history – the first two were destroyed or had to be torn down due to storms and natural causes like shoreline erosion. With a range of 16 nautical miles, Tybee Island Light Station stands as a testament to the perseverance of the area, and a general improvement upon the original wood construction it featured. Tours at the Tybee Island Light Station and Museum are all self-guided – enjoy the 178 steps as you climb to the top.
