This is such a beautiful area! The lighthouse and grounds are manicured and gorgeous. There was a short wait for the climbing the lighthouse. The lineup is outside so be sure to have sunscreen on and patience in hand. It is $7 to climb the 214 steps to the top. There are clean bathrooms across the parking lot. A short walk away is the historic village and whale head historic home. Very pretty so charge the camera battery!

Our entire group of 2-60 year olds climbed this to see the view and take some photos. Lighthouse is made of brick and had interesting displays inside.

The park where the lighthouse sits has a lot to offer and during the summer, you can enjoy wine tastings. If you want to visit the Lighthouse, be prepared for a long wait. Take turns standing in line, enjoy the park. Keep an eye on the weather- thunder and/ or lightening closes the lighthouse. The view is spectacular.

Well worth a trip to the top. Gorgeous views of Corolla once you make it to the top. Go early b/c lines get long in late a.m and in afternoon.
