Located on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina. Built in 1962 to replace Morris Island lighthouse. 163-foot-tall triangular lighthouse has an elevator and air conditioning. After the elevator ride, it is still necessary to scale a small staircase to reach the lantern room, where a powerful light source is housed. Originally, the light produced an amazing 28 million candlepower, but this powerful beam proved dangerous and was downgraded to a light of just over a million candlepower that has a range of twenty-six miles.
