The Outer Banks of North Carolina are home to many historical, natural and recreational attractions.  The historical attractions include the five lighthouses and their keepers quarters. These lighthouses date form the 1870's. You may climb The Currituck and Cape Hatteras Lights. There are also lifesaving stations dating from 1874. The Chicamacomico Station in Rodanthe is open to visitors.
