    Bodie Island lighthouse

    Go check out the Bodie Island Lighthouse, go up Route 12 north to the Oregon Inlet and on the north side you will see the lighthouse, just drive up Route 12 a little bit more and turn left, Watch for the sign because it's not that big. This is an other beautiful lighthouse located on the outer banks barrier islands. An other great photo op, so grab your camera and go take some shots! Check our Nags Head page for more history about this lighthouse.
