Cockspur Lighthouse
Built between 1837 and 1839; at the start of the American Civil War, the light was temporarily extinguished. Miraculously, the beacon suffered only minor damages and after the war in 1866 the beacon was relit and painted white. It has survived many hurricanes and can be seen crossing the Lazaretto Bridge entering into Tybee Island. If you catch the dolphin tour you will get a close up view of the lighthouse. Make sure you bring your camera!
