Take a tour of this magnificent lighthouse.

The Bodie Island lighthouse was first constructed prior to the American Civil War but was tragically destroyed in 1861. It was reconstructed in the 1870s and was retrofitted with electricity in the 1930s, and is still functioning as an aid for boats coming in to shore. The most recent restoration of the lighthouse occurred in 2013. This historic lighthouse has a spiral staircase that has 214 steps in total. It is one of the few remaining brick lighthouses located in the U.S. 

Nearby, you can find the keeper’s quarters which features exhibits, and a small bookshop for visitors. You can either purchase tickets to go inside the lighthouse in advance or on-site when you arrive. It is open daily year-round, but hours may vary during the off-season. Bring binoculars with you if you enjoy bird watching. It is in close proximity to the Pea Island Wildlife Refuge, and many birds are located in the area.
