St. Simons Island,  Georgia
This photogenic, 104-foot-tall lighthouse dates to 1872 (and is still in use), having been fully restored in 2010. Visitors can climb the 129-step cast-iron spiral staircase to the lookout and admission also includes entry to the adjacent Keeper’s Dwelling Museum (the last keeper retired with automation in 1953) and the Maritime Museum at the Historic Coast Guard Station.
