Outer Banks, North Carolina
 
Currituck Lighthouse
N.C. flag

This is found at the northern end of the Outer Banks.  It does not have the distinctive paint scheme of other east coast lighthouses.  That is what makes it unique.  There are about 260 steps to the top.  From the top one can see both the Atlantic and Currituck Sound, and on a clear day, even the mainland.
