“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Been going to Hatteras for 35 years and this is the first time I've taken the time to visit Bodie Light. Glad I did. Very educational!

It is worth a visit to understand life on the Banks in the 1800's.

“Worth the drive down from Corolla!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Really interesting and scenic stop. The light keeper's quarters have some historic information and a gift shop, unfortunately you can't climb up it right now due to rennovations. The walkway out to the lookout is fun and perfect for kids.

“Beautiful area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We got there after closing, so we have no idea what is inside. We were able to walk along the boardwalk to an overlook of the marsh area. It was beautiful and we took lots of pictures. Next time we will get there earlier.

“Easy visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Easy drive from Nags Head, nice visitors center and grounds, very cool to see how it was done back in the 1800's. Worth a stop for all.

“Great smaller light house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

This light house was a good as its larger friend just South on the shore. It was under construction as it suffered hurricane damage but worth the 5 minutes it takes to stop and shoot a few pics.
