Beautiful views from the top deck of this 160+ foot tall lighthouse. There are several landings on the way up the 220 stairs - not a bad climb.

Not much else to say. It is a lighthouse. Free to walk around but $10 to climb to the top. It is pretty and historic.

I had never seen this lighthouse so it was fun to stop and see it. We didn't have time to go to the top, but I'm sure it's a beautiful view.

We visited four lighthouses on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If you are up to the climb to the top of the lighthouse, it is well worthwhile.

This lighthouse is beuatiful, historic and so much fun to climb. The climb is well worth it for the amazing views of the sound and the Whalehead Club.

Fun place in the historic area. The adjacent park is wonderful. The climb is not bad and the view worth it. Watch for the winds at the top, they will surprise you. Nice gift shop on the grounds.

Adults cost $10, however if you just want to go inside and take a photo looking up at the spiral stairway there is no cost.
