Next on my tour of must see buildings of North Carolina actually takes us 29 miles (about 47 KM) off the NC coast to Frying Pan Shoals Lighthouse. Looking more like an old Oil drill platform it`s actually modeled after one. The light itself was decommissioned in 2003 and was moved onshore to a museum. As for the lighthouse itself, it was damaged during a hurricane about 16 years ago but has since been repaired. Lighthouse has been decommissioned since 2003 but was bought by someone from Charlotte, North Carolina and has been completely restored and converted into a Bed and Breakfast called the "Bed-and-Breakfast for the Adventurous." The lighthouse is only accessible by helicopter or boat. And yes the lighthouse has it`s own helipad which has been fully restored to operational status. So if you`re looking for a bed and breakfast like no other and want to look at a lighthouse up close then come to Frying Pan Shoals Lighthouse.
