Ocracoke Lighthouse

Lighthouse sunset best

Completed in 1823, Ocracoke Lighthouse stands at a stumpy 75 feet tall. Thus, it is the shortest lighthouse in the state, but the longest in operation. Although the lighthouse is not open for climbing,  visitors can explore the grounds and take tours led by the NPS throughout the summer. The lighthouse is located on Lighthouse Road, near the historic Albert Styron Store.
