We had a wonderful time at this lighthouse. We took our one year old to the top and he loved it. The staff gave us all a sticker at the end which my one year old loved!

The kids loved the climb, and the view at the top was spectacular!!! The lighthouse is well preserved, and the spiral staircase feels very safe.

We viewed from the outside as I am afraid of heights. The grounds were lovely and the atmosphere pleasureable. We took a walk out the the adjacent sound via a nature boardwalk which was most interrsting and enjoyable hike.

Lighthouse was closed for climbing - out of season. Would go back just to do the climb. Saw it from the distance from our Wild Horse Adventure Tour and decided to go back and see it up close on our own.

This was one of the best maintained lighthouses we have ever seen. The grounds and buildings were perfect.

Inside the light house was really neat to see. The steps going up were pretty neat, and made some people nervous. The view from the top is awesome. very good learning experience for the kiddos.

Enjoyed seeing this beautiful red brick lighthouse, but disappointed that it was closed and only open in summer months.

We travelled up to Corolla to see the Currituck Lighthouse from Kitty Hawk. I love lighthouses, it was a cold foggy morning when we left, we got great shots of the lighthouse and Currituck Sound in the fog. Love the old area with many picturesque buildings, bridge, wildlife museum and beach area. Lighthouse was closed this time of year.
