USA Today Names Bodie Island Among America's Top 10 Best Lighthouses

Posted By on June 6, 2014

More national recognition for the Outer Banks, as the Bodie Island Lighthouse has been named one of the 10 best lighthouses in America in a list released last week by USA Today .

The list of the “10 Best Lighthouses Around the USA” was compiled by Kraig Anderson, who took a trip to see one in North Carolina more than a decade ago, and has since visited every lighthouse in America, which totals more than 750 depending on how you define them.

Of the Bodie Island Lighthouse, USA Today writes, “This 156-foot Outer Banks beacon is often overshadowed by the nearby Cape Hatteras lighthouse, located on the same National Seashore. But its renovation last year, which opened the tower for climbing, makes it a must-see.”

“It’s stunning,” Anderson says. “The Outer Banks has the premier collection of lighthouses in the United States.”
