The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
Talk about getting lost in a store! Edith’s Gallery, located in Central Square, features five rooms stuffed with antiques and vintage items and lots of cool “junque.” There’s wonderful finds to be had at this eclectic shop, and an antique lover can easily spend hours looking. Nearly every corner, every shelf, every glass case, every inch of the floor has something interesting. Edith’s sells costume and vintage jewelry, furniture, vintage clothing, children’s toys, magazines, baskets, rugs, dishware, mirrors, old kitchen implements, art, pottery and glassware. There’s a large collection of vintage children’s books and an entire room of knick-knacks. Opened in 2001 by Outer Banks artist Edith Deitgen, the store reflects old Nags Head and there’s always a local gem among the vast inventory. Of course, like all good antique stores, every week offers something different
