The lighthouse is breath taking and you can actually walk to the top at your own speed. This is a beautiful place to just set and take in the craftsmanship of the lighthouse itself. They have done very little to take away from the originality of the house. There are several shops surrounding the lighthouse that you can enjoy. Many of them little jewels that add to the experience of the lighthouse (little coffee shop, book store, etc). We also had lunch at one of the local shops. Really enjoyed and will return.

Currituck Beach Lighthouse is lovely. You can climb to the top in just a few minutes, or enjoy the lighthouse giftshop next door, There are also several shops and things to do nearby.

We just went to the lighthouse to take a quick picture before heading home. It was very beautiful. One of the prettier lighthouses that we saw because it is unpainted.

We had a great time exploring the lighthouse. Then we went to the nature museum and the kids loved seeing all of the animals. We had a picnic and enjoyed the view of the water as well.

As I history buff, I very much enjoyed the Currituck Lighthouse! The climb wasn't bad at all, the historical information was awesome, the grounds were beautiful and the view from the top was spectacular!
