Wanted to visit cape look out from Nags Head , finding out it is 120 miles away... wow


Is it possible to get a map of all the lighthouses? Would love to visit all the lighthouses in June, we are from Big Cabin, OK and would like other sites to see. Thank you.


Dear Charlene,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia. I suggest going to the site “Visit NC” ( for places in to visit and to see if they might also have a map they can send. There are also numerous maps available commercially on the Internet.

I hope this helps!

Best wishes,

Elizabeth Hayden, Government & Heritage Library
