A Lighthouse Christmas

Travel back through time and experience the sights and customs of Christmas at the Tybee Island Light Station in the days of our last Lighthouse Keeper and his family. This quaint depiction of holiday cheer in the 1930s and 40s illustrates the traditions of a simpler time by a small family whose closest, and sometimes only, neighbors were the military families of Fort Screven. Enjoy the twinkle of the Christmas Lights across the island from the top of the Lighthouse, carols, hot cider, and the joy of the season by the warm glow of candlelight.

$25 (Adults) $15 (Children 6-17) Reservations required. Please call 912-786-5801 to reserve early as space is limited.
