This was a fun climb with the kids, but it had been rainy and the steps and railings were wet, which made it a bit challenging. This is an activity for people with the ability to climb over 200 stairs, but the view at the top was great.

Compared to other light houses in the Outer banks, this is just okay and not so beautiful. The climbing cost is little bit expensive.

Climbed to the top of the lighthouse and took pics from the top outside section. Great views. My knees felt a tad shaky by the time I got back down. Who needs a stair master with all those steps to the top.

This lighthouse is made of red brick. The grounds are very well kept and the staff is very knowledgeable of the area. Great photo opportunity. Cost 8.00 to go up the lighthouse. Neat gift shop too with locals available to answer questions.

The Currituck Beach Lighthouse is a great start to an Outer Banks lighthouse tour--or a great ending! Great place for walking, too.

This is neat and a great photo op - you can even go up in the lighthouse for a small fee. We checked out four on our trip up and down the coast. If lighthouses are your thing, check them all out.

I walked up the 200+ steps to the top with my 6 year old and it was great. There are many places along the climb to stop and rest and it really isn't scary for the little ones. It is $8 to climb.

It was beautiful but we wish it had been open so we could have got onto the grounds. We were there 20 years ago and actually went inside the home.

The lighthouse and grounds were well taken care of at this lighthouse. It was in a nice location, fairly easy to get too. There was a private residence, a smaller house that was the gift shop and the lighthouse. There were plenty of places to sit down outside and trees to offer plenty of shade. There are some other things... More

Made of red brick, built in 1875 this Light is beautiful and distinctive. The grounds are well kept and very easy on the eyes. The climb is worth it. I still have my sticker that I got for making it to the top.
