This 19th-century lighthouse soars 198 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, making it the tallest brick lighthouse in the US and the 2nd tallest in the world. Guests can climb to the top.
The News & Observer
24 July 2012
Attend a Full Moon Tour, where climbers will navigate the 257 stair staircase using handheld flashlights. During the climb, park rangers provide stories of the arduous duties of the lighthouse keeper.

The lighthouse is not air conditioned and it can get very hot while climbing it so check the weather forecast before picking what day/time to do it.

257 stairs to the balcony. Great view and lots of history. Lighthouse was moved due to beach erosion. The move itself was a marvel of engineering.

If you want a great photo with sea oats and dunes in the foreground, walk out to the public beach access there at "old lighthouse location" and double back on the beach towards the south.
Smithsonian Channel
24 June 2011
Built in 1870, this 210-foot brick lighthouse is still the tallest of its kind in the U.S. In perfect conditions, its beacon can be seen from as far as 20 nautical miles. (From Aerial America)
