We tried to see it about 6PM before going out for dinner, but that close and lock the gate at 5:00 PM, so watch your time! We went the next day, and really enjoyed it. We chose not to climb it, but that is an option! No fee to get in, but to climb there is an $8.00 fee per... More

We did have to wait in line in order to climb, but we didn't mind. Pleasant staff and pleasant grounds. After we climbed we also walked to the marsh areas and really enjoyed that walk and scenery as well. You could easily spend a good portion of your day here.

The lighthouse was great! It was very warm the day I climbed but well worth it. I recommend climbing in small groups and this is probably not the best for small childern

I liked it was easy to find. Only problem was it was surrounded by trees and you cant get a clear photo without trees. But it was still beautiful and the tress made it nice and cool.

Visiting the Currituck Lighthouse was worth a stop. First, the grounds were well kept and it was free to walk around the area. There was a gift shop and of course the lighthouse to climb if you desire. There was a fee of $8 to climb the stairs, and my husband said the view was beautiful. I didn't quite want... More

This is a very well kept looking lighthouse. It is kind of hard to find the entrance, cause it does not say lighthouse, but some kind of village. The lighthouse is surrounded by trees and in a park like setting. We were in a hurry so, we did not climb it. We opted to just take some pictures.

We climbed to the top and enjoyed the awesome view. People were very friendly that worked there. If you love history, you'll love visiting.

Enjoyed visiting the lighthouse... although going to the top wasn't for me. Seeing the interior, and the thickness of the walls, and surrounding buildings was interesting.

Very good workout climbing to the top. Nice views from above. But don't tackle this one if you are not accustomed to exercise. The staff were very nice and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend getting there early, there is lots of parking but it fills up fast. You do have to stand in line outside as they only let so many... More
