This is a small lighthouse, but the oldest on the Outer Banks. A lovely boardwalk leads to it, and it is an awesome place to take photographs. We could not go into it on the day we were there, but I would be interested in doing that if it ever open.
Ocracoke itself is a lovely place to visit, and we found no one to be rude or in any way anything but helpful. Perhaps having your home overrun by tourists grates on some nerves, but most realize that it is these very tourists who keep their tiny island home alive.
