    This was our 2nd time touring the lighthouse. The first time being 12 years ago and much has changed. First of all the docent that gave the tickets was a man who didn’t even look up from his newspaper/reading material to greet us as we came in the door. He never said “Good Morning” or welcomed us in anyway. Then he was very haughty to an older lady who asked him about a senior citizen discount, telling her that they didn’t offer such. I remember the gift store 12 years ago as having more lighthouse themed gift items and better price points. Whomever is buying for the store know has chosen to place knock off Tory Burch bags, scarves, clothing, very expensive jewelry, scrimshaw boxes, very high end items in the store. Many have nothing to do with a lighthouse and there is no small affordable mementos to bring back for family or friends. The keepers quarters have been updated. The bottom part is a history part and the upstairs is the actual quarters. The first floor was a self guided tour and sort of boring. The living quarters were nicely done and the climb to the light house was fun. But all in all it isn’t worth $12.00 per person for adults for a self guided tour and a climb to the top of a lighthouse. Young children will not find it very enjoyable except for the climb and then you are quite nervous at having them on the platform at the top of the lighthouse. The Georgia Sea Turtle museum is much much more interesting and more interactive. Better/more helpful docents and a much better gift store. I give the light house 2 stars but would have given 3 if the gift store person had been friendly.
