Outer Banks Vacations

Celebrate National Lighthouse Day!

August 7th is National Lighthouse Day! It was on this day in 1789 that Congress approved an Act for the establishment of lighthouses, beacons, buoys and public piers. Because the Outer Banks is known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic due to the thousands of shipwrecks caused by perilous channels, dangerous coastlines & hazardous shoals and reefs, generations of seaborne travelers and mariners have sought the comfort of these beacons' reassuring light as an aid for safe entries to harbors.
