Outer Banks have things to do from dawn to dusk

For $7 an adult can climb the 214 steps to the top of the lighthouse, about 150 feet over the sound.

We could see where N.C. 12 ends in the north, the town of Corolla and the village of Duck to the south, the Currituck Sound to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east as we circled around the top of the lighthouse.

It is very windy atop the lighthouse, and we were both trembling a little from the height and the long climb to the top. But it is totally worth the effort.
