    Not A Round Lighthouse

    This is not really off the beaten path as much as it is NO path. You can't visit this lighthouse, you can only look at it. It is just down the street from Fort Moultrie

    You can see the lighthouse from the land, and also every time you cross the harbor on the ICW or go out from the Charleston Harbor.

    The triangular lighthouse was built in 1962 to replace the Morris Island light which was threatened by erosion. Inside there is an elevator and it is also air conditioned. I am told that the elevator is only for freight.

    Don't you just love a good lighthouse hunt because I do! Now you've seen the new so take a run over to the Old Charleston Lighthouse. If you look really close to the photo you can see just below the arrow is the lighthouse on Sullivan's Island. From Sullivan's Island to Folly Beach just off of James Island about 20 to 30 minute drive down Route 17. Take the Folly beach road and turn left and go all the way to the end at the Holiday Inn turn left and go all the way to the end, park and walk about 1/4 mile out to the beach and you will find the Old Charleston Lighthouse which sits out in the ocean about a 1/4 mile. Bring you camera and tripod and lots of batteries.
