Hilton Head Island Shopping: 16 reviews and 15 photos
I did not go up to the top of the lighthouse to patronize this shop.
First, I didn't want to give any money to people who put up a lighthouse billboard as a tourist attraction and then try to pretend that it is a real lighthouse instead of just being a giant advertisement. Signage is very strictly regulated in Hilton Head, and this structure certainly violates all the restrictions.
The boat in picture 2 came into the marina without using the lighthouse as an ATON (aid to navigation). If the lighthouse had a navigation purpose, then it should be warning about shoals and boats wouldn't be coming near to it.
The tradition of the lighthouse service is too special to be mocked in this way.
The last two pictures are of other 'lighthouse' signs which don't pretend to be real lighthouses.
And second, I didn't want to climb the steps.
What to buy: Mostly they have replicas in every possible configuration of this 'lighthouse'.
It would be better to patronize some of the shops in other areas.
Address: 149 Lighthouse Road
Directions: At the entrance (by boat) to the marina
