My late grandmother always loved the OBX lighthouses, and it felt so nice to go see one of her favorites up close. The lighthouse is beautiful, and the grounds are well kept. The park staff is so incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed chatting...More
Bodie lighthouse is beautiful. Just taking pictures I could be there all day. There are nice areas to walk. A very nice gift shop. Also depends on if you tour the lighthouse. I would say at least an hour.
