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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
