“Fantastic views”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Great educational attraction on lighthouses of the Carolina coast. The view is worth the climb and $7 fee to get in. Even if you don't want to do the climb the place is worth the visit, a number of historical buildings give you a great look back into the past of this area.

“You can climb this one... be ready!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Really cool lighthouse. This one is open for climbing so wear the right shoes. It's $7 to climb. Bring your camera as well for the views from the top and the view from the bottom. Really cool place and there's a nature center within walking distance.

“Great Lighthouse”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We did not climb the lighthouse but it was fun to see it up close. If you stay in a hotel close enough like the Hampton Inn Corolla, you can see the lighthouse light up at night. Very cool.
