As the tallest location on the Southern Outer Banks, Buxton is home to the tallest brick lighthouse in America - the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. A center of history, beauty, education and commerce, the lighthouse has a small museum and visitor's center. People come from all over to climb the 200-plus steps and see the breathtaking view from the top. Surfers come to ride the waves beside the towering structure and a championship for surfers is held annually near the lighthouse. This iconic structure is what comes to mind for many out-of-towners in the area, yet Buxton proves there is also a great deal of activities to enjoy.

Buxton also houses the largest maritime forest along the North Carolina coast. The dense forest, known as Buxton Woods Coastal Reserve, is located in the widest part of the Southern Outer Banks - three miles wide. As the central community along the islands, Buxton has the area's only school. There are many different restaurants and grocers in the area; it also has campgrounds, tackle shops and store for the influx of summer travelers. A weather bureau office and satellite offices are in this town also. Buxton is definitely a place for vacationers to visit.
