The Bodie Island Light on the Roanoke Sound guides boats around the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Bodie Island Light is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, a popular tourist attraction.
A lighthouse was first built upon this point in 1847; like many old lighthouses, the structure has been destroyed and rebuilt several times since its inception.
The Bodie Island Light was recently remodeled in 2013 to improve the experience for tourists visiting the light. For a day fee, visitors can climb to the top of the Bodie Island Light.
