Bodie Island Named USA Weekend “10Best: Scenic lighthouses around the USA”

For its "Scenic lighthouses around the USA," 10Best offers a "look at some of the lighthouses throughout the country that you can climb and take a peek at their original Fresnel lenses, made in Paris." Among the notable lighthouses, 10Best says, "Like its popular neighbor, the Cape Hatteras Light Station, the Bodie Island Light Station (pronounced "body") in North Carolina's Outer Banks sports black and white stripes. A recent restoration reopened the light station to the public in 2013, and visitors can now climb its 214 steps to the top for stunning views and a look at its original 1872 Fresnel lens, with 377 glass prisms, weighing in at 9,000 pounds and valued at $2 million." [Please note the Bodie Island Lighthouse Tours run the third Friday in April through Columbus Day in October. The Bodie Island Visitors Center is open year-round.]
