In Corolla, also known as Currituck, tucked away in the trees you’ll find the Historic Currituck Light House. This Natural brick, Never painted, Lighthouse is in such a gorgeous setting on the Outer Banks. It is impeccably well kept & open for climbing to the top reaching 162 feet tall. Like the other lighthouses on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Currituck Beach Lighthouse still serves as aid in navigation. The beacon comes on automatically every evening at dusk & ceases at dawn. With a 20-second flash cycle the light can be seen for 18 nautical miles (about 21 land miles). Currituck Beach lighthouse was the last major brick lighthouse built on the Outer Banks.  We were up for the challenge  of climbing to the top. 220 stairs later the sprawling views did NOT disappoint here are some photos from our adventure at Currituck.
