Hunting Island Lighthouse

35. Hunting Island Lighthouse

The world looks a lot different from 132 feet high in the sky. The Hunting Island lighthouse is the only lighthouse in South Carolina that allows access to the inside and the view from the top is well worth the effort. You can see for miles. There are fascinating plaques at each landing describing the history of the lighthouse and the mechanics behind it so you have a good excuse to take leisurely and educational breaks along the way. If you work up an appetite after climbing all those stairs, stop by the Lighthouse shop on your way out for a quick snack or a souvenir to help you remember your excursion.
