CURRITUCK BEACH LIGHTHOUSE
1101 Corolla Village Rd., Corolla 252.453.8152
COST: FREE but
there is a fee for climbing the lighthouse tower
HOURS: May - Thanksgiving Weekend: Daily 9 am - 5
Really fun and inexpensive! Follow a little path to the
lighthouse and gift shop. The lighthouse has 214 steps to the
top, where you will see an amazing view! The climb is too
difficult for young children so expect to carry them. There is
not an elevator; the only way to the top is to climb.
Lots of great stuff in the gift shop but it is very small.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS- Free
to walk the grounds. Beautiful view.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS- Difficult for young children to climb to the
top of the tower, and there is no elevator.

FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-
Price is dependent upon how much and what you pick, so you could
make it fit your budget.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS- Road in is quite rough. Selection can be
