Outer Banks Lighthouses
The Outer Banks is home to some of the most historic lighthouses in all of The United States.
The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse not only is the tallest in the nation, it's also one of the most recognized American lighthouses and a famous symbol of North Carolina. Cape Hatteras is one of the few North Carolina lighthouses where visitors can climb the inside stairs to the top. Cape Hatteras has white and black spiral bands and a red brick base. The lighthouse's beacon of light can be seen some 20-miles out to sea and has warned sailors for more than 100 years about the treacherous Diamond Shoal
