St Simons Lighthouse Adventures

The St Simons Lighthouse is a beacon on the island. It holds so much of the island’s history and is a must see during your visit. Kids will love it too!

Have you ever been to St. Simons Island? It’s a quaint little island nestled on the Southern coast of Georgia. The views are breathtaking, the beaches are beautiful and their is so much history on the island. As a kid, I loved history. I still do. Now as a mom it makes me so happy to see that Tatiana shares the same love of history. Wherever we go, we absolutely have to learn something new. T’s request is that we always visit a museum or library when we visit a new place. There aren’t many museums on the island or historical libraries but the lighthouse holds a lot of the island’s history. We’ve been to St. Simons Island a few years ago when we visit The King and Prince Beach Resort but didn’t get to climb the lighthouse.

St Simons Lighthouse Adventures

This time around we made sure that we didn’t miss out on any St Simons Lighthouse adventures. The lighthouse was calling our name as soon as we touched down on the island. T missed two days of school for this trip and honestly that doesn’t bother me at all. After losing Tristan, we know that our days together are limited. We try to make the most out of our days together. This trip to St. Simons was more than just fun. We learned together, we laughed together, and we created priceless memories together.

If you’re a lover of history or just looking for somewhere historical to take your kids while visiting the island, I highly suggest the St Simons Lighthouse. When you get there, you’ll watch a short 10-minute film about the history of the lighthouse and their keepers. You’ll then head over to the museum and learn even more with interactive screens and artifacts. T was amazed by everything in the home. She loved learning about the light keepers. After we toured the museum, my family walked the 129 steps to the top of the lighthouse. You can see most of the island from the top. One thing to note if you’re going to climb is that the stairs are narrow and it gets hot as you get closer to the top. The view is amazing (according to my family, I didn’t climb).

    Fascinating! We climbed a lighthouse in Chincoteague and all I could think about was how in shape ppl must’ve been who were there daily! Gorgeous views from that height that make it well worth it.

    My grandparents lived in Savannah so I went there many times as a child but don’t believe we ever went to St. Simons Island. Looks beautiful!

    Oooh! Something for us to do in the coming year. We don’t live that far away, but I’ve never made the trip to St. Simons. I’ve been to Savannah MULTIPLE times, but not down there…
