If you want to see the entire area the light house is the place to go! At $10 a head to climb to the top it's a little pricey, but the money goes to preservation so we didn't mind. You can see the entire area from the outside walkway around the top. Lots of interesting history in the graphics at... More

The history was great. The kids loved it but what a walk to the top. Had 12 of my family with me 9 Adults and 3 kids. Nothing like it. The weather was great and views were beautiful. Don't miss this on your next trip to Outer Banks, NC

Love the historic old light house, one of our favorite spots to grab a little shade or pass time while waiting to check-in at the rental company.

This was our second time climbing this lighthouse. It is quite a hike to get to the top so wear comfy shoes. They kindly place fans on the landings to keep the air moving because it is toasty in there in the summer months. The view from the top is incredible!

We visited the lighthouse on a beautiful morning. Would definitely recommend doing in the morning as it is cooler for the climb and there are fewer people. We arrived right at 9 when they opened and got right in. Each landing had information about the history of the lighthouse. The view at the top was amazing of the surrounding area.... More

Pay the ten dollars and walk to the top...the views are worth the money and the effort. Historic and you can see for miles. History lessons on the way up or down.

An outstanding view from the upper deck. While it is a bit of a drive to get there, travelling through Duck makes it all worthwhile.
