“Love this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I love lighthouses so we decided to check out this one, we've been by a few times throughout the year and haven't actually been able to go up it. Everytime they've had it closed for some reason or another. But it is beautiful. One of the workers didn't seem to happy to be there, but we ignored that part of it and still took lots of pictures. Of course had to take pics by the sign that states it's a snake habitat as well, outside of the lighthouse haha.

“Renewed Splendor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The renovation of this light allows a great trip to the top, and spectacular views. In 40 years this will be in the water, so go now:) Walk the boardwalk with your camera and spot blue crabs in the inlet. Snakes also love it here, but they were a nonissue.

“Bodie Island lighthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Make sure that you take the time to visit the Bodie Island Light House while you are in the Outer Banks.
The museum on site has wonderful photos and information.
We always make sure to stop by and snap a new photo of the family at the lighthouse!
