The Currituck Beach Lighthouse excursion was fun! Popular destination post Wild Horse Fund Excursion (right around the corner from there.) Loved reading its history on the walls of the lighthouse!

We visited the lighthouse in early June, enjoyed hiking to the top and taking pictures of the surrounding area. It was much busier on a rainy day than a sunny day!

I climbed the 220 steps of the light house. I took pictures out each of the windows along the way up.

Nice views, steps easy to negotiate for a light house my 8 and 10 year old had no trouble with the stairs. Very muggy and hot inside so bring water bottle. $10 per person cash only to climb to the top. Super cute gift shop...More

Wonderful place to visit. Great views of everything around. There were plenty of places as you go up the lighthouse to stop and take a rest or look out at the different views.

The Currituck Beach Lighthouse was so interesting! I went there with my family and everyone loved it, the line was not too long and when you got to the top, you could see so much! I definitely recommend visiting this.

Adults cost $10, however if you just want to go inside and take a photo looking up at the spiral stairway there is no cost.
