10 Beautiful Lighthouses in North Carolina That You Must Visit

In middle school, I was lucky enough to go on an actual lighthouse tour of the North Carolina coastline. South to north, we ventured on ferries and rode through the salty night air to reach high destinations that have guided ships since the 19th century.

For all North Carolininas, lighthouse tours are a right of passage. If you’re wanting to plan one this summer, here is a north to south list of North Carolina’s beautiful and historic lighthouses.
