Cape Hatteras Light in Buxton, NC is America's tallest light. It's nicknamed "The Big Barber Pole" because of its diagonal stripes.
Its beam warns ships 20 miles out to sea of the treacherous Diamond Shoals, but supposedly the light's painters got their plans mixed up and the diamond pattern mistakenly went to another NC light at Cape Lookout.
The light beam is 208 feet above sea level and climbing the tower takes 268 steps. Cape Hatteras is the most famous of the four Outer Banks lights and a 'must see' for any visit to North Carolina's Outer Banks.
