We did not take the tour to the top due to having young children and there was a waiting line. However, the lighthouse is very beautiful and the Lighthouse Shop is very cute and worth walking through.

This wonderful lighthouse is one of the prettiest in the outer banks and should be a mandatory stop for anyone passing through. We didn't stay for very long, but any amount of time is enough to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of this essential tool for navigation.

Fee is not much. Kids loved it. I hate heights so I stayed right next to the pole. Great view to take some nice pics. Village is nice.

Currituck lighthouse makes me smile. Our children love it so much they have nicknamed it their "bricky." Last year we all walked up to the top. Amazing views inside and out. There is a nature walk on the property as well which takes you out to the sound. This year we could see "bricky" from the house we rented. It... More

Stopped by for a quick photo op on our way to take a wild horse tour. Would have loved to climb to the top but due to the length of the line we did not. However, the grounds are well tended and there are several spots perfect for picture taking and dining under the trees! Great spot! Remember there is... More

This classic lighthouse is worth the visit and the $8 admission fee to climb it's stairs. Take the time to read about it's history at the base of the staircase. It just makes you appreciate all of the work that went into building the lighthouse and it's purpose. The view at the top is worth the climb. In the summer... More

My son and I went on a Monday afternoon. The line was very short, but the attendant made a game of staying out of the sun that killed the wait time. The climb was very easy with landings about every other floor level. Great trip for older kids to learn and live history!

It's surrounded by picturesque grounds and has a wonderful view. It's also nice that this particular lighthouse does not charge for children under 7.

We thought this lighthouse park was set up nicely. Places to sit in the shade. Bathrooms available. We did not walk into the lighthouse although we could have done so but chose not to.. The gift shop was great, lots of things Made in the USA.

We were there on a beautiful day, mid day and there was a line of families waiting. The view is well worth the wait, not too many steps. $8 to get up to the top for the view.
