At nearly 200 years old, Georgetown Lighthouse is hard to miss with its iconic red-and-white stripes. While the lighthouse is closed and visitors are no longer able to climb the more than 130 stairs to the balcony for panoramic views, a sign at the entrance details the history of the structure. View it from the street or from one of the upper floors of the nearby Marriott Hotel. Work out when and for how long to visit Georgetown Lighthouse and other Georgetown attractions using our handy Georgetown trip itinerary tool.

Georgetown Lighthouse reviews
but I didn't actually go inside recently. Did tour the landmark way back in 1993. Seemed pretty decent back then. Still, I took some photos from the Marriott Hotel. more »
Harder to get in here than in Ft. Knox and the result is so disappointing. With all the lighthouses in the world- you can easily miss this dilapidated run down one! more »
