Southern Snapshot: Bodie Lighthouse ~ Bodie Island, North Carolina

[Image credit: Yvie Field of Gypsy Road]


The Outer Banks of North Carolina boasts five gorgeous lighthouses, including this one on Bodie Island.  One of my favorite memories with my in-laws is a trip we took just over a year after my husband and I were married to the Outer Banks.  The only lighthouse we did not see during that trip was The Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse.  I would love to go back one day and see that one, too!

Along with this gorgeous Southern Snapshot you will find a fun activity to do with children building a lighthouse from the blog, Gypsy Road, as well as a Lighthouse Unit for home schoolers or simply for teaching kids about lighthouses!

  1. I went to NC once with an old boyfriend who surfed. We saw the lighthouse that was later moved away from the beach. I’m not sure if it’s the same one.
