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.]

USA Today’s “10Best” Visits the Alluring Outer Banks!

In a 10Best featured article for USA Today, "10Best Visits the Alluring Outer Banks." The article notes, "When it comes to beaching it, everybody is different. Some sun worshippers long for action, a busy Boardwalk and plenty of after-dark activity. Then, there's the Outer Banks. This series of North Carolina barrier islands attracts a mellower crowd. A strip of laid back beach towns connected by bridges, the Outer Banks, or OBX for short, is home to about 60,000 residents year-round. That number nears 500,000 during the summer and fall, vacationers drawn by powdery sand, stellar fishing and a shallow coastline dotted with historic wrecks. Most stay in the McMansions that line the beaches; six, seven and eight-bedroom homes that can easily host a multi-gen family getaway, a girlfriend's weekend or a sporty man-cation."
