We are in North Carolina for a family wedding, and happen to be staying less than half a mile from the Currituck Beach Light Station. Since the kids had never been up inside a lighthouse before, we decided to stop in, climb the 214 steps to the top and see what we could see.
The lighthouse was very interesting, and included several displays that conveyed the history of this particular site as well as lighthouses in general.
The kids liked the circular staircase.
Of course, the view from the top was amazing.
