Cape Hatteras Lighthouse will be open to the public for a free climb on Saturday, December 10, 2016 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. This event is part of the OBXmas Weekends celebrated with the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
Volunteers from the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society and Cape Hatteras National Seashore park rangers look forward to greeting locals and visitors at this event. “This opportunity to climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse free of charge is one of many ways to welcome in the holidays along the Outer Banks” stated David Hallac, Superintendent of the Outer Banks Group which includes Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial.
Children who wish to climb the lighthouse must be at least 42” tall, and children under 12 years of age must be escorted by a person at least 16 years old. Climbing the lighthouse is strenuous and is equivalent to climbing a 12-story building. For more information on what to expect, check the park website at www.nps.gov/caha.
