Bodie Lighthouse on Bodie Island is among USA Today’s “10 best lighthouses around the USA.” A lighthouse website and app creator, Kraig Anderson first took a trip to see a lighthouse in North Carolina more than a decade ago, and has since visited every beacon in the country – that’s more than 750 depending how you define them. Of Bodie Island, the article notes, “This 156-foot Outer Banks beacon is often overshadowed by the nearby Cape Hatteras lighthouse, located on the same National Seashore.
