On the soundside of the island amid tall pine trees, a lush green lawn, and freshwater marsh and ponds, the Bodie Island Lighthouse occupies an unusual setting for an Atlantic lighthouse. The portion of Cape Hatteras National Seashore on which it sits—Bodie Island—is largely undeveloped, so you can get a pretty good idea of the isolation the lightkeeper must have experienced when the lighthouse was first lit on October 1, 1872. This eTrail includes information on local attractions on Cape Hatteras National Seashore, including Bodie Island Lighthouse, Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, Chicamacomico Life Saving Station, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, Ocracoke Pony Pens, Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum, British Cemetery, and Ocracoke Island Lighthouse. Also included is a list of places to eat and places to stay along the seashore.
